Away from the window~

There is a beautiful world outside my window,
One I can see in my leisure,
Relining on a British armchair,
When the Sunday morning rays
Walk into my drawing room through the window pane.

I see the changing seasons
From green to a foray of colors
As the leaves turn golden,
Sometimes scarlet
In the peaceful quite autumn.

The Scandinavian cold wave rebounds my window
As I sit comfortably
in the warmth of my house
Watch out for the day,
For that, is the best thing to do now.

The vintage car parked right across the street
Charming women, who
Make me aspire more of youth;
The vibrant children
And all those, seem to be happily walking down the road.

There are no stories starvation, demise or oppression
outside my window,
And that seems fine,
A thing of beauty is joy nonetheless
For a man with vision, that goes as far as his window.

  1. smiles…we often dont realize the little blessings that make our life so easy…when there are others in the world that are in so much pain and strife….thanks for slowing us down to think on it….

    • Brian, welcome back to my blog – it has been long that I have participated in dVersepoets. I am glad that you like my poem.

  2. The pacing of this poem is wonderful; it almost forces you to slow down and savour each image. How much beauty is there right outside our homes that we never take the time to enjoy?

    • Yes, there is so much and then it was intentional to create an effect, a contrast of some sort towards the end – seems it has come out well 🙂

  3. “There are no stories starvation, demise or oppression outside my window,
    And that seems fine, A thing of beauty is joy nonetheless
    For a man with vision, that goes as far as his window”…. Beautiful lines…
    I wonder if the stories of starvation, demise or oppression have already been experienced by the man with vision?
