I have a dear friend who is a poet...and she wrote this poem about Cape May, NJ...near where she lives.
VICTORIAN CAPE MAY
You will be taken back in time
In the city of Cape May.
On the southern New Jersey shore,
Where the ocean meets the bay.
The old Victorian houses
Built many years ago
Sit today in elegance
In styles that stately show.
The ornate architecture
Is amazing to behold.
The towering three-story structures
Stand sturdy and quite bold.
The inland homes of various hues
Are beautiful to see,
So colorful and exquisite,
Taking you back in history.
The gabled roofs and turrets,
Along the charming lamp-lit streets
With large porches and long fences,
Lined with graceful wrought iron seats.
It was an era like no other,
With dignity and grace.
And before your tour has ended,
You’ll fall in love with this quaint place.
