A Distant Land

All along the cobbled streets and gentle streams
her music plays. Hark back to the singing hills, our
country soiree, where I wandered with you into

the shadows of every scattered light. Do you think
often of castles and cliffs hugging the shores or the
grassy seas when you hear Debussy? Even here      lingers

the smell of wine that filled the streets. Now every
breezing leaf takes me to our countryside. More than
a dream, less than a memory, I wandered with you into

a space between. Clear night skies were our sanctuaries.
King and queen and peasant lands cast in one light. Every
hill and valley beneath us was ours, we in balloons for flying

far away. Your humming calms the fields of iris in
a
distant land.

    Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

      Hey there! Sorry for the delay in my reply. I do use WordPress, but only used minimal coding to get this blog going. I downloaded a website template/theme and adjusted the specs in the settings to my liking. There are a ton of great website themes for blogs if you look around. Hope this helps.
