Penelope - Poem by Guillermo Veloso

You have bought me to this place
Far from home and unrecognizable
Now torn and ripped by Scylla
Swallowed and spit up by Charybdis
Only to wander aimless again
Between crag and shoal
Are these the years to come?
Round about a maelstrom of sadness
Venture in search of the other
But remember always Penelope
That while others came, withered and faded
I was here in flesh, blood and bone
And remember me as the downy snow
That fell through your dreams,
Softly with smiles, laughter and love.
