A Poem about a country cottage, a warm, peaceful country afternoon in a country cottage.

Brianna's cottage small and quaint
as it sits all alone,
the sun sets just overhead
giving all the comforts of home.

As ivy doth climb upon its walls
lending life waiting to enter in,
gives the feeling of the simple life
like sipping tea with the next of kinn.

Warmth and laughter linger behind its door
pale linen curtains white and shear,
Brianna's cottage invites those
who visit from far and near.

Cottages have a special magic
that comes from their country appeal,
Brianna's cottage holds this treasure
of cottage secrets never revealed.

Nice cosy poetic piece. Sipping tea and reading a favorite book in a cool cottage. What can be more enticing?
Reviewed by Regis Schilken 2/26/2011
Nice! I've seen cottages that invite just the kind of person and the kind of thinking you mention in your poem. My wife and I hve been to Nova Scotia and along the coastline, have seen many such cottages which welcome you with a cup of tea.
