Newness in Latter Years

A new start is always good
beginning afresh completely new
this opportunity came to me late
least expected it not having a clue

But when it came it was a thrill
to do my own thing in my time
using this time what I thought best
relaxing at peace life's a rhyme

An opportunity to enjoy nature's best
walking in the hills forever green
seeing the countryside at it's loveliest
such a sight so real to be seen

I could also read all I promised
to feast my eyes upon before
such history I hadn't known
now I could let my mind soar

To give more time to poetry
read and write to my hearts content
write real images in your mind
blessed is this for it's divinely meant

(This is based on my new life of early retirement which began four  years ago.)
