A Story To Tell

On a hilltop

The grand mansion

many rooms

each meticulously

tastefully restored

A home once owned

by a wealthy family

now a heritage boutique hotel.


European garden setting

A bright courtyard

centre of the house

musical performances

solo piano

duet recitals

other ensembles.


A large treed garden

horse stables

artefact museum

back of the mansion

Local and international movies

stage productions.


The scene is set

The drama

An expatriate

falls in love

with a beautiful woman …

He met her at …

But …

The story unfolds …

poetic journey of imagination

begins …

    • It is a beautiful location, Jet. The ambiance of the place is very impressive! Performing art groups have concerts, drama plays in the courtyard of the historic mansion. A group of us have really enjoyed ourselves exploring and taking in the culture and natural beauty of the surrounds! Appreciate your thoughts on the poem and glad you liked it 🙂 Have a lovely day! 🙂
