A Smile Brought To Mind

My heart is a small cottage
Nestled among the trees
It’s stone hearth lit by a fire
As warm as you please

May my love be enough
Keep you safe and warm
In a world sometimes rough
As a raging winter storm

Come inside and feel safe
A ship sheltered in the bay
Never lost nor misplaced
Nestled we in bales of hay

For on those long cold nights
When the moon wears a smile
Clouds and smoke and lights
We watch all the curls spiral

When that old north wind
Is all it wants to send
Be a chill right down your spine
A maker meet ‘is end

Only hearing what I’ve said
Be making ideas over time
Listen to only what is read
Singing like a wind chime

For our past is great as glory
Leaving nothing left behind
Let our children tell our story
With a smile brought to mind

About this poem:
A little poem about remembrance for all we are and say….I am often inspired by simple country life here in the New England countryside and sharing a little of that sentiment here.

Reminds me of some of the childhood stories of a warm, cozy cottage representing the good in the world before the big bad wolf or another villain strikes. However, everything always comes out right. Enjoyed it. Thank you.
