“Lost Horizon” by Kenneth Nolan


Lost Horizon

I lodged at Shangri La for a short while

My stay was most pleasant and dreamy

The cityscape and architecture was most like Dublin

Noisy, unforgiving and occasionally weary

I always loved her hair after she had just washed it

It flowed like the rivers imagined in any far off paradise

All so soon I had outstayed my welcome

Over coffee her words tasted like poison

She returned the book I lent her by James Hilton

And I was left with my own lost horizon
