Cottage on the lake -- Play it Again Challenge

 
Cottage on the Lake
 
A little cottage on the lake
Quiet place I can get away
Draw, write, compose, fly time away
 
Fish in the day and watch for snake
I'll clean my fish then fry and eat
Nature calls, has city life beat
 
Live off the land, a life to make
Rest and peace brings creativeness
Need no more for persuasiveness
 
Watch the stars at night while awake
Listen, their story jot it down
Paint the scenes from my sketches drawn
 
From my small cottage on the lake
I've forgotten business rat race
And done a complete about face  
 
A little cottage on the lake
 Fish in the day and watch for snake
Live off the land, a life to make
Watch the stars at night while awake
From my small cottage on the lake

I love to have a cottage like that.. until I have to paint its walls.
