In Greenhaven


I wake up in the morning with the sunlight on my face
As it glimmers through those Banksias
That thrive around this place
And it feels just like the country
Lots of trees and lots of space
In Greenhaven.

The shops are down the road a bit, but not too far away
And there’s a sense of freedom here, and everything’s okay
Oh! when that sun shines through those trees
At the break of a summers day
In Greenhaven

Greenhaven is the place for me
It lies just out of town
We have our beers and barbecues
When folk they come around
In Greenhaven

I love this happy home of mine
Where the sun shines through those trees
And the cockys scream as they fly above
So alive and wild and free
And I sit and play my old guitar
In this place just made for me
In Greenhaven.

    This poem hits close to home for me! You practically described the small, country town where I live. I am from Wisconsin, in the United States, and living here is as close to heaven as it gets! Except, the wintertime can be pretty harsh....Very beautiful piece of heavenly poetry you've written here. Nicely done!...Thanks for your kindly visit, as always!
