Peaceful Place - Poem by Paul Fowler

Let me stay in this peaceful place,
Where there's never a worry nor care,
Time is of no consequence here.
Given the choice I'd always be there,
The place where I can work hard, or not,
The pace is solely determined by me,
Time to count all the good things I've got,
The attraction here is for all to see,
When days are hard and I want some space,
Let me stay in this peaceful place.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem came about after a particularly busy week at work; I started thinking of this poem on a bright, summer's evening on my allotment

    Also the place where I want to be where I need to be. Great one.

    Blessed are those who seek for peace, which the world is lacking so much and is in need of it daily! (Report) Reply
