During my 3 months stay,
as much on the side of my ailing Dad's bed as I could bear,
I found great comfort in living only minutes on foot,
from this gorgeous, crystal clear lake
with an awesome 180 degree view
to glaciers in the far distance.
This picturesque home was situated along the lake and path,
easily reached by bike and near my favorite spot 
to bath among the swans and ducks.
Up hill, an organic farm offered delicious honey ice cream
and real strawberries picked only hours prior,
red, ripe and ready to relish.
