Simply Poetry

The Hills Are Alive!

Nestled in the hills

a quaint country town

home-made jams and conserves

relishes and honey

farm fresh produce.


The thriving township

with wineries

cheese and dairy factories

sheep and cattle farming

verdant green pastures

in the valley.


European villagers

operate bakeries

cafes and restaurants

charming cottages

homes and gardens

winding roads


pretty wildflowers


cool meandering streams.


A village that has much character

art and craft shops

picture galleries

cobblestone streets

music in the air

yodeling on the hills

what olde world charm!
