Landscape For Escape

In a valley - there is a quiet space
A small lovely - and semi-sacred place
A tall lushly - green and shady tree
Stands with beauty - and beckons thee
Come sit softly - in peaceful shade
This view only - for you was made
Across the brightly - yellowed grass beyond
Lies a moody - and reflective pond
Sit quietly - in stately grace
