Treasure Island

Giorgio Venetopoulos

(Athens, Greece)

- Yellow umbrella


Her drafted shape -my thought- appeared aside the cloudy rainbow,
so gracefully on ether walked; romantic apparition,
as she was holding an umbrella that was smiling yellow,
and neath the clouds she visited my mindful recognition.

Amid the mist I saw her smile and radiant emission,
she flew above, inside the dew, her vernal laughter blithesome,
caressed the promises of years before, adorned contrition
the bells then rang but very far, her bright umbrella's spectrum.

And I embraced her as I should, before time's definition,
the daffodils embellishing our dusk, but not the morrow
oh, how two souls had fled along our blooming last rendition,
while that umbrella covered hence, her inward raining sorrow.

    Yellow is my favourite colour Georgio - yellow umbrella would be lovely, as is your poem. Delightful, and expertly rhymed.
