Let’s Go to Switzerland

Today at d’Verse Lillian challenged us. Since we are not able to travel now because of the Covid-19 pandemic, write a poem that takes every one along with us on a trip we have taken in the past. Here are the directions:

  1. Write a poem that is a travelogue of sorts.

2) The TITLE must include the name of the place we’ll be visiting

3) Post the poem to your blog AND add the exact URL for your poem to Mr. Linky below.

4) REMEMBER to either TAG dVerse in your post, or include a link at the end of your poem that leads readers back to dVerse

So, travel with me to Switzerland where or daughter and her family live.

Let’s Go to Switzerland

Switzerland is a wonderland
Where visitors love to go.
Springtime’s filled with flowers;
Winter – with magical snow.

We rode the tram to the top of the Alps
And stood on the mountain’s summit.
A trail for skiers led to the base,
But we stood back; no desire to plummet!

A favorite meal in the state of Valais
Is raclette, luscious melted cheese.
It’s made with milk from sweet Swiss cows.
Come and enjoy a day with us, please!

  1. I want to go! <3

  2. Nice lines showing seasonal contrast: “Springtime’s filled with flowers;
    Winter – with magical snow.”

    • Thank you, Frank. We’ve been there in both seasons. My husband loves the winter (he’s a skier). I prefer the colorful window boxes, abundance of wildflowers, and mild spring days.

  3. Great poem, ma! Love tour Swiss cow photo 🐮

  4. Your poem made me smile, and that friendly cow made the smile even wider!

  5. Beautiful!!

  6. It is on my bucket list of places I would visit (before I kick the bucket!) since I was 12, and this poem just bumped its place to number 1.

    • Of all the folks our daughter might have married, we’re so glad she chose a Swiss. It’s a wonderful place to HAVE to visit!! 👍🏽🤗

  7. What a great trip you had there. Switzerland is a magical place in my mind.
    Welcome to d’Verse Jan!


  8. Switzerland is one place we’ve not been that remains high on my list to visit! Your words have whet my appetite for that journey even more. And what a FABULOUS first photo! Is that you….or is that one from Pixaby as well? SO glad you joined us today!

  9. Where did you visit?

  10. Now you make me wish for Raclette, with new potatoes and cornichons…

    Thanks for taking us to Switzerland. I loved the perspective on the cow photo. It made me smile.
