A Distant View Poem by Ernestine Northover

A Distant View

Rating: 4.6

A distant view
Can beckon you
To dream of unknown destinations
Where life has no more regulations
And freedom reigns.
There are no chains.

A distant view
Can summon you
With magnetic power. A forceful attraction
Revealing nothing, not even a fraction
of what is in store
What you're looking for.

A distant view
Can often woo
Your heart, and let you fantasise
About a place you could colonise
Where your soul's at ease
And, your life's a 'breeze'.


from my home.. in the Caribbean... I had an awesome view. the tall building in new york block most of the beauty.: ( this poem is superb.
