your muted hues,
and pausing to ponder
among leaves of chartreuse,
I hiked up your hilltops,
where the vines gleamed like gold,
and among glittering gems,
I secretly strolled.
Or so I thought!
A lazy, grazing flock of sheep,
stood, gazing, guessing,
who'd made a peep!
Catching a glimpse of eagle's eye,
Thought I'd bid them all goodbye!
Downhill I tread
on slopes slippery and steep,
and arrived at a church,
among fruit bearing trees.
A few steps away,
surrounded by green,
St. Matthew's is part
of a pastoral scene.
And, in the neighbouring village,
at the top of the road,
yet a third church stands,
next to an olive grove.
I spy my space,
high in the sky,
and spot others of stone,
stucco and dye,
with your tableau
of gold and bordeaux,
December is upon us,
you shall go,
in my heart, aglow.
Thanks for visiting!
