On A Gorgeous Day

God made for many a meandering field
Each year fragrant flowers it did yield
Heard song birds when they would sing
Where they always liked to be lingering.

Could find cows with a few friendly goat
On romantic island really rather remote
Long ago lived much of my wife's ancestry
And some once  were on local church vestry.

Scotland and Ireland, island was in between
What person saw was such a pretty scene
If I let my wonderful wife have her way
God will greet us there on a gorgeous day.

Maybe you might also like the next poem I have written just for you. How do you like PoetrySoup? Will have to go and read some more of your poems. My wife Jill is a Webster/McCarroll and the cruise will be great for being near her ancestry. I am a Horn/Yates/Fulton with British Isles as their point of origin. Jim Horn
