As the children play

As the children play

As the children play
The morning comes awake
The sun comes peering through the mist
To herald in day break
I hear the call of a sleepy duck
As he waddles up to me
Two ravens fly above my head
Their lonesome calls enthral me.

There’s a feeling deep within my soul
As I watch the river flowing
The mood in me spells harmony
And it gets my heart to glowing
In the silence, echo’s of the truth
They fill the morning air
As the breath of mystic morning comes
To leave my soul quite bare.

The kookaburras crazy laugh
Does break on through the morn
As more waddling ducks arrive
To laze upon the lawn
And all around day comes alive
With the sounds of, tiny birds
As I watch these little fairy wrens
Such joy in me is stirred.

    I feel the same simple joys when the wild birds roam freely through our yard.... This serene scene just comes alive in the wonderful way you described it, Peter! Very well done, my friend!

    Oh wow this is a very discriptive write, love it my friend with every work I read from you the more I'm coming to love your country and really am starting to yearn to see it more every day. It's becoming another word for paradise to me. I yearn for a place with the same hometown feeling to it like where I grew up. I guess it's like that old saying you take the town living out of someone but you can't take the old home town out of a old homey. I grew up where it was wild and free not in the city.

    Where I live is a nine mine drive to the beach, nine minutes to the wetlands and about forty five minutes to the river and the rapids. We get six different types of parrots living here, and multitudes of other birds, We only have to go round the corner a ways and we can see numerous Kangaroos, even though it is the city we live in. I love it here, but I am biased. Thank you for your kind comments, my friend....peter

    Hi Cheri, probably I love Perth so much is because I was born in the concrete jungles of Peckham, London. You can definitely take that away from me. I went back there in the late nineties and I still hated it. After living there. Perth most definitely is a paradise.

    Another gem my friend. Your diamond mine must surely be well stocked!! All great but this stanza stands out with me! "There’s a feeling deep within my soul As I watch the river flowing The mood in me spells harmony And it gets my heart to glowing In the silence, echo’s of the truth They fill the morning air As the breath of mystic morning comes To leave my soul quite bare."
