Austrian Splendour

 
Praise to the beautiful mountains and lakes,
The humble log abode that provides a home,
Where the parents and children of Austria live.
The wooden table where they sit and dine,
Delicious foods prepared, freshly baked bread,
Cheeses and cakes and cookies,
Dinners cooked to perfection,
The bright dirndls the women wear, 
And the lederhosen worn by the men,
Evenings of good music and singing,
An exquisite destiny to visit again.

    it's funny you have me blocked... I have never crossed path with you..or done anything to you.. I'm wondering what kind of person would block, someone with out knowing them... You should leave the judging up to GOD, ,,, there's enough hate on the soup as it is... once again,,, why would you block me, for no reason... God Bless you... and your black heart

    Thanks for reading my poem about Austria, Carol. I have been there to visit when I was a young woman. You sound like such a good teacher of writing. I always appreciate your comments. God bless.
