Newport



Opulent mansions filled with splendor
Butlers standing tall and slender
Floor to ceiling gilded in gold
The tour today...electronically told
Tapestries hanging over winding staircases
Silver and china and Peony vases
Lion's paws for all the chairs feet
A French decorator...simply sweet

Well manicured grounds
Shrub-shaped trees abound
The breakers, the ocean satisfied my yearn
Yes, dear Newport, I will return

  4. I've never seen an ocean in person so I always enjoy scenes of the water. Those are some massive houses.

  7. You're a poet and I didn't know it! I love Newport...and that way of life was just outrageous and incredible, wasn't it? ESPECIALLY at the Breakers.
