A Country Cottage By The Sea.


A poem written after a visit to a friend’s cottage situated in an isolated but beautiful area of Sligo,off the usual tourist trail.


A Country Cottage by the Sea


A country cottage by the sea

With a wildflower garden and rockery

A little patch of heaven for you and me

Where we can sit and chat and dream

And there, at the bottom, a giggling stream

Singing a sweet melody as it tumbles along

As we listen to the birds as they sing their song

A symphony of nature caught on the gentle breeze

A sanctuary from the world where we can be at ease

A rest place for the body we can surely find

A balm for the soul and calming the mind.
