The dome

The sky will stay up there and meet the horizon
time will continue, and  the tide that smoothes  the shore
gulls will be searching for some food that washed up
we had our bed and breakfast but is there no more?

We traded our toys down at the playground
got first price for winning the soap box derby
fixed up an old  clunker into a  icon car
sort of reminds me of the  movie called Herby.

Never walked the marble floors of Winchester cathedral
nor looked out from the Eiffel tower  over the city
But I have discovered what many have not yet found
the greatest stadium on  earth, no sighting?  Such a pity.

Hope you have been in Vermont and had apple cider
with a peppermint stick in it and half  pan of cornbread
its no ordeal to become a  connoisseur of the green state’s finest
while you sip remember the time of the downhill race you led. 

What has been beneath the blue dome will stay for our children
we must give up our seats to let them enjoy the show
I’ve been blessed with all of the creations laid before me
its time now  for you to begin your visions  so you will know. 

Life began and it will end our journey come what may
but beneath that big blue sky  there’s such a wondrous  ambiance of a decor
spread out your blanket and watch the features on the big screen
it will be there today for you and for evermore.

This is quite good, it paints many images on my mind.
