As I Breathe The Sweet Air - Poem by ANDREW BLAKEMORE

As I breathe the sweet air all around me,
And I gaze at the beautiful sky,
Far over the valleys and mountains,
An eagle is soaring so high.

As I see all the sights of the country,
And drink from the rivers and streams,
I feel such a strong sense of freedom,
For this is the place of my dreams.

As I hear all the wonderful bird songs,
That float through the woodland I roam,
I gaze at the trees all around me,
And know that this place is my own.

As I smell all the scents of the flowers,
Their colours so vivid and strong,
And knowing wherever I wander,
My heart here shall always belong.

    As I read your songs of beauty
    And I breathe the sweet air all around me
    I could see the dancing angels
    On a choir to God Almighty

    Hi Andrew.. keep up the good work!

    The cadence of your work, is smooth, and lyrically enhanced...well positioned imagery, along with the fluxing structure, makes for an enjoyable read....Solid Work, once again, Andrew.
