    The Land Of Faraway

    This quickly written poem was inspired by a art fabric done by Designer 1234, one of your quilter members on the forum. It was inspired by a photo she sent me of her Fabric art. I have a friend who maintains a list of my writing fans. Her name is Ann and she will send this out on the internet soon with music and Shirleys graphic. I hope you will enjoy it. Vickey Stamps

    The Land Of Faraway

    © Vickey Stamps 7/21/12



    In the land of Faraway

    A place where imagination can lay

    The sound of laughter upon snow

    In scenic places kids love to go

    Two children playing beneath a tree

    One that stood, one with bended knee

    Exploring a track he’d chanced to see

    As he waited beneath a slim Birch tree

    Of a foxes foot that paused awhile

    So later a child would come to smile

    To picture the fox as he stood there

    Showing his sister … needing to share

    Watching the smile caressing her face

    One that time would never erase

    Now a soft wind whistled a sweet little sound

    Through the limbs of the tree and onto the ground

    The sound of laughter only children can bring

    Rang forth from the two and beckoned forth spring

    A frozen river with its layer of ice

    Gave beauty to all …like a taste of good spice

    For winter would stay yet for awhile

    More children could come here. More could smile

    More foxes to pause beneath a tree

    In a land of magic for you and for me

    It happened in the land of Faraway

    Where beauty rests and children play

    Thanks for the reply dear Bonnie and glad you enjoyed it. I have a mailing list where stories are sent out on line. Send a PM if you want my friend Ann that adds music and graphics and mails them for me and I'll get you added to the list.
