A Peaceful Place

Rolling hills majesty, lush grass for the surrounding space Overlooking two white horses from a fairy tale across the way Masses of flowers to be seen flowing in vases made of strength A hush of dew in the morning dusts this peaceful place Vibrant luminaries around each piece shine in the night air Their story told on celebrated markers placed precisely everywhere People will come to visit, kneel, and talk of the days before This is the loved one’s home now and the caretaker is their saving grace A hush of dew in the morning dusts this peaceful place. ©Holly P.
