Birds Fly Over House In The Sunset: A Poem

Below the purple hills
lies a little house
where sight of green tree
greets you and your spouse

There each happy morn
with the dazzling dawn
lies fields of green and gold
viewed by doe and her fawn

Sunsets are golden
when they shine down
turn field colours to flame
when they light up the ground

It’s simply paradise
no fancy palaces
or halls of gold
just two souls living
and loving together
until they grow old

Five birds come flying
in the night sky
like the sunset glowing
they bid the day goodbye

There is a wonder
in such a land
where fields and forests meet
the work of God’s hand

Amidst the sun now setting
home fires now burn
day’s work is now…

The hierarchy on board vessels of His Majesties SHIPS ordered by the captain of each vessel who assumed the position of deity quality and his word was law.

A few days out when most of the landsmen had gained their sea legs the first discussions between the party leaders now for the most part the party leaders had good intentions. But we all know what road to he’ll are paved with.
