    dotsThe Bonnie Hills Of Homedots

    Tonight I sit and gaze across
    The calm and deep blue sea
    I am many miles and far away
    From where I long to be
    From a land where eagles soar and fly
    Where the deer and cattle roam
    Tonight my thoughts they manifest
    To the bonnie hills of home

    As I close my eyes I clearly see
    My mother in her chair
    I see my fatherís graveside
    With my brother standing there
    The little stream it runs on by
    With choppy waves and foam
    Flowing gently all around
    The bonnie hills of home

    Children in the meadow play
    With an innocence so true
    Chasing all the butterflies
    Beneath a sky so blue
    How time it seems to stand quite still
    Like a broken metronome
    And sunny days they never end
    In the bonnie hills of home

    Just by the glade I see the girl
    Who I miss and love so well
    The feelings that I have for her
    No words could ever tell
    I remember well the day we met
    By the little chapelís dome
    And we spent that summer lost in love
    By the bonnie hills of home

    As tears they fall I now decide
    To go back without delay
    Ignoring all the reasons why
    I chose to go away
    And when I return Iíll make a vow
    To never ever roam
    Iíll live my life for evermore
    By the bonnie hills of home

      This is such a precious poem, it makes one homesick just reading it! The old saying "there's no place like home" never rings truer than when one is long and far away, and memories of homeland pry at the heart!

    This delightful work captures the longings of the heart for one's true home, and the spirit is never at rest until one is there! Outstanding work, this! Thanks for sharing this with us!
