We had serendipitous fortune to stay
with arborist Rowlie, the very next day
who chatted at length oh, so merrily
with his dear spouse across the sea.
Chatting, yes, no heed to type;
high tech, I guess
that thing called Skype®.
We chimed in, too,
with such good luck;
‘cause I’ll tell you
we saved a buck!
As a point of reference,
his former spouse
had parsed with much deference
that old sturdy farmhouse
into a fine countrified B & B
way back in the ‘90’s, a grand sight to see!
So now he could host the spouse-ster and me!
