Rookie - 30 Points (1969 / Beersheba)

Summer in Rome


By the over flowing Tiber,
Walking slowly,
to the Turtles Fountain.
-

Looking at the Trevi,
Anita,
Is nowhere in sight.
-

The summer rain falls on the Trevi,
Tossing a coin at Oceanus,
Aiming between the eyes.
-

Sweating we arrive
To watch Triton sitting,
Under layers of dirt.
-

I take off my baseball cap,
Four rivers-
A new heaven?
-

Summer rain outside,
Inside Japanese tourists chatting,
In front of a silent Moses.
-

Drying up in the Parthenon,
I tweet on my cell,
What an amazing technology!

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
