The David Macdonald Lounge
Resting by the fire in a high back chair
     drinking in the peaceful atmosphere
          enjoying quiet time away from home
Queen Elizabeth, in regal robes
     gazes serenely over the lounge
          fire blazes cheerily in the hearth 
Leather sofas with matching chairs skirt the walls
     and a pair of striped high backs, like sentinels       
          guard the portrait of the Queen
Scenic paintings, tastefully displayed
     grace the golden walls on which they hang      
          lamps and hanging lanterns gently glow
Navy blue carpet, yellow flowers peeking through
     muted soft light streams through high windows
          add notes of sunny warmth to my lovely stay
