I love the Victorian era and enjoy writing about it. In this poem I decided to engage the fun side of me, writing a whimiscal, fantasy poem...that I hope you will enjoy!

Gentle voices from the past
Call to me day and night
Whispering of their grace and charm
In echoes so polite

The Victorian Era, gentle and fair
Is the chosen era for me
If there, I'd be gathering flowers
To place beside my Victorian setee

I would receive guests daily
In my perfectly managed home
Serving tea in my finest china
With dainty sandwitches and scones

Life there would be so perfect
The pace slow and sweet
The road rage of todays traffic
Would never occur on my street

But, I am here, not living there
So, I'll just dream and sigh
But, should you see a time machine
I'll be waving to you from the sky.

That era had a lot of grace and class...we have many Victorian homes here in Sacramento midtown area and most of them have been restored beautifully.

A fine ode to a different time, Joy. Perhaps you feel a connection to that time because you were there in another life. Thanks for sharing. Love and best wishes,

I love Victorian Romance Novels and can easily put your face on the Heroine of each novel I read. You have such a lovely way of expression. Who knows,maybe in another life, you WERE a Victorian Lady.

Lost in Time was beautiful. Makes me think of those early Tea Times from 3-5. The Victorian era was a beautiful time of innocence. Times when men were truly gentlemen and the ladies were truly Ladies of their time. George

Lady Joy, the truest of Victorians...with the mildest of manner and deeds...a glimpse as seen here in her poetry!
