A Little piece of Heaven

I wandered down a dark sleepy place
and saw the boats along the quay
I have never seen such a peaceful sight
I was not scared, there was no fright
I could hear the wind chimes ,gently chime
and I felt that I had stepped back in time

I saw the children playing in the woods
all wrapped up in their little hoods
and heard the laughter of them playing
along the side where I was straying
I could smell the smoke coming out of the chimney pot
and saw the glowing light within
and wondered how any place could be so peaceful and without sin

I could see the herbs growing in their pots
the sweet smell of forget me nots
the rustic buildings made out of wood
their little piece of heaven
I looked out across the river bank
and gave them a little thank
for letting me see the other side of life
when all we worry about is our strife

This little piece of england gone
with its easy pace and gentle life
a place where the sun as always shone
I will not forget this idyllic place
and I will also remember the face
that showed me
ths once part of englands past
where life is slower and not so fast
and the sights and the scenes of the autumn weather
will embedded in my heart forever

To thank the person who showed me
what its like to feel free
for giving me the experience of a different time
and to always hear those wind chimes gently
Chime
