In Other Words — A House by the Beach


I dreamed of owning a large house by the beach

But the cost of that dream was always out of reach

A cabin way up high in the mountains would be nice

But there is no way I could afford to pay such a price

So I’m stuck living small in the city, such a pity.

    You are probably pretty close to both the beach and mountains though aren’t you? Good job on the prompt!

      The beach is about 3 miles west and there are mountains pretty close to the north, east, and south.
