Apple Isle Reminisce

Swathes of house strewn hills bathe in after storm sunlight brave Shocks heavy clouds, knocks gloom away, spotlight locks Bay's grey sparkle, renewed day brightens, strollers stay Proud steel bridge carries loud traffic witnessing lifting cloud Cornelian Bay, revealing lopsided boat sheds remember fish reeling Domain central space retains natural bush, wildlife remains Mount Wellington counts months of snow cap, close to town City called Hobart, unassuming pretty place, subject of this ditty Sandy Bay, scenic, handy to City, it's here if anywhere to dress dandy Battery Point deserves flattery, colonial cottages, harbour view smattering Mona, incredible art loner, architectural wonder, prominent owner Views from too many places, water inescapable, fresh blue Gazania's cheerful mania sprawl on steepest hills of Tasmania Devils ravage meat, dishevel opponents, fight decides levels Top to tail drive pops frequent amazement, close sea stops Road journey slowed only by photo moments, memory furrowed Isle induces many a smile, slow pace invites visitors stay a while. 25th July 2020 Observe Contest Funam Makanam Three Rhymes per line

Thanks, Lindsay. A lot more to mention, like Richmond etc. Maybe for a poem with less annoying bounds.!
