Poem About Relaxing Life At The Cottage “Lake Life”

Lake Life

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where people are fake

I love unwinding
On the long, relaxed drive
I need this escape
To help me survive

I love my neighbours
I love bonfires
Away from road rage
And screeching tires

I love ghost stories
I love making s’mores
Not thinking ‘bout problems,
Working, or chores
___

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where everyone takes

I love having a cold one
While sitting on my deck
Breathing the fresh air
Is totally worth the trek

I love my lake house
I love peace and calm
I love spending time
With Kids, Dad, and Mom

I love playing board games
I love holding my pet
And watching old movies
On videocassette
___

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where I leave my heartache

I love going swimming
I love to suntan
I love to play frisbee
On the beach in the sand

I love a picnic
During a long hike
I love getting around
Mostly using my bike

I love camping
And sleeping in a tent
The lake is my bathtub
and forest my apartment
___

Gimli beach and boardwalk

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where I don’t get a break

I love the sunsets
And playing guitars
Hearing crickets and waves
While gazing at stars

I love to go sailing
On lake Winnipeg
My motorboat’s waiting
You won’t have to beg

I love when a fish
Is on the end of my line
I love playing cards
While enjoying some wine
___

Lake Winnipeg Visitor Centre

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where my sanity is at stake

I love cuddling up
With some tea and a book
I love fresh pickerel
For my wife to cook

I am the grill-master
I love barbeque
Steaks and drumsticks
With a nice cold brew

I love long morning walks
With a family of deer
My playlist is birdcalls
The wildlife is here
___

Arnes Market main building

I love my cottage
I love the lake
Far from the city
Where I am semi-awake

I love Arnes Market
And cruising Gimli
Shopping and eating
And leaving happy

I love the boardwalk
I love the arcade
Fun times with kiddies
While getting some shade

I love the trees
And nice scenery
I love lake life
It’s the life for me
