What a lovely place it must be - this cottage that inspires you to write! We all need a haven where we can just feel at ease and watch moonbeams play...

Ah so serene and filled with images pleasing to my peace of mind. Tis a great privilege to have a quiet place in nature to be free to let those creative thoughts fly free.

Another fine poem from your quill and a most enjoyable read today. :)

This sounds like a wonderful retreat and you are inspired to write your poetry there, how quaint.

I have a suggestion for this line for the sake of meter:

"This quiet lake glistens in the sun"

"This lake that glistens in the sun"

Love Dolly x

My Cottage On The Lake
by jaybird1

Hello, Mr Jay,

Is your cottage a real place or imaginary? Like a meditation? In any case it sounds wonderful. I like your Rhyming. Well done.

It is nice to have a cottage to go to when you are down or happy. It is nice to have such a inspiration like nature. You are prolific and hope you can continue to do so. You are a role model for all of us.

I perfectly understand your escape to the cottage, only there in front of this beauty the words are filling a nice reverie: "
When day is through and night draws near,
the words I seek seem to appear.
With pen in hand I eagerly
attempt to set their meanings free" Thank you for sharing and good luck with your writings.

Hi there, Jay
We are just in the middle of selling our cottage on the Washdemoak. With my wife's health suffering, we just don't get up there much anymore. But it's good to have a special place to write, isn't it? We have huge pines all around our cottage, (another reason for selling). One blew over a couple of years back. Fortunately, it fell away from the cottage.
At night, when we turned off the last light, it was pitch black. You couldn't see your hand in front of your face. But as you laid your head down on the pillow, the last sound before nodding off is those loons. Their call to each other is one of nature's rhapsodies.
I noticed one spag,
"At night it's quiet (amomg) these hills-" ...(among)
I also noted that most of your lines have perfect meter. But there were a couple of lines that could use a look.
"This quiet lake glistens in the sun" ... (I suggest,
This quiet lake gleams in the sun)

"At night it's quiet amomg these hills-
Except for chanting whip-poor-wills." ...( My suggestion,
Nights are so peaceful neath the moon-
Except for Lord and Lady Loon.)

Keep enjoying your cabin, Jay, and keep writing!
Cheers,
Kimbob

This is a beautiful poem and it speaks to the idea that we could all use a place of peace to hang out, regroup or just find solace in. It sounds like this is just that kind of place.

Hello Jake,
The cottage sounds like an inspirational place.
I live by a lake, so I know the feeling.
Excellent sonnet with exact rhymes in the aabb pattern
and very good descriptive imagery.
The whip-poor-wills are great, we presently have cicadas,
tree frogs, crickets and other night "music."
Well done.
Best wishes.
Robert
