Outside the art gallery
Sitting in a camp chair,
While my wife’s at her spinning group
I enjoy the clean fresh air.
I observe my surroundings,
And take it all in.
This quaint country town
That seems absent of sin.
At the place where I am sitting
There is a slight breeze,
And the view that I enjoy
Is 180 degrees.
Vehicles are lined up
In the car park so neat,
With the old Wondai pub
Right across the street.
Dimity’s Cottage Restaurant
Is in my line of sight,
They serve great home cooked meals
Every day and every night.
I enjoy this laid back lifestyle
Where life is not a rush,
A place where time goes very slow,
With a landscape green and lush.
I hear birds singing in the trees,
See a blue sky specked with clouds.
A lazy dog lies in the shade
Wherever it’s allowed.
The Main Street with it’s dozen stores
Is within an easy walk,
In this sleepy little village
Where people stop to talk.
