The Green Green Hills

Winding road

leading to

rich pastoral country town

called Peppermint.


The bustling crowd

at the market place

chattering and mingling

excitement fills the air.


An auction is

about to begin

the auctioneer calls

for attention

silence all at once

the sheep were brought in.


Market produce

locally grown

fresh succulent vegetables

a variety of fruits

people pick and choose.


Peppermint green hills

lush and tranquil country

quaint charming cottages

cobbled streets

tree lined avenues

reminiscent of yesteryear.

  1. Iris, that last lovely stanza makes me want to pack up and go there. ❤ I adore yesteryear charm.

    • Yes, Wendy, a visit to this charming place would be enchanting. There are families in the region who open their cottages for farm-stay. My stay at one of these farms was quite an experience!! 🙂 Have a beautiful weekend, my friend. ❤


Appreciate your thoughts.
