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!
