Nothing beats a walking tour
To get to know a city,
To learn about the pretty spots
As well as those quite gritty.

In Dublin, with a guide named Rex,
We zipped along the streets
And laughed a lot while learning of
Its cool historic treats.

And then to a museum,
An exhibit of Vermeer.
How fortunate it was displayed
While on our visit here.

This all was on 2 hours sleep
But still, we plodded on.
A Guinness and some fish and chips
Until our strength was gone.

In bed at 6! But rested now,
My mind anticipates
The coming day with much to see -
A new adventure waits.

    Ilene, I always find myself singing (internally) when reading your poetry. Such a smooth and flowing delivery of lines with rhymes that are flawless. What a grand poetic adventure this was.
