Featherbed

Poem By Ernestine Northover

Clouds all tumbling steadily along, way up above my head,
Looking, Oh, so cosy, like an exquisite featherbed.
I could just relax there, within those many rolling hills,
And sleep, and dream away my cares, my sorrows and my ills.
Floating across the blue expanse of sky and space anew,
I 'd thus become as light as air, and could bid the world adieu.

You make us want to be there too. Nicely done.
Beautiful thoughts Ernestine, you made me feel like I want to float on clouds too. Andrew x
Reading your poem I felt as light as a feather, and that is the evocative power of a style like yours. What a beautiful mind, Ernestine. Love from Susie.
