On still water, a graceful swan does swim.

As a horse trots by, its rider upright and trim.

A swallow swoops an insect to grab.

Why is city life so dull and drab?


A fishing rods snaps, a prey to catch.

Two lovers walk past, their giggling match.

A breeze blows the heat away.

Just another sweet, warm countryside day.


Paths through woods blazed by the Sun.

Joggers on a midday run.

Peace and quiet, a heaven on earth

Broken only by pleasure filled mirth.


Give me a bench to sit and stare,

Where time would pass without a care.

Take the city far from here.

Out of sight and beyond my ear!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
