The Melody Lingers On - Poem by Christopher McInnes

British singer Joe McElderry is marooned on Cyprus by the volcanic ash cloud - April 2010.

On Cyprus, blessed isle in azure sea,
Joe wanders through the sandy groves,
Singing notes so beautiful the wood nymphs
Cry to see them die away

From heaven Zeus looks kindly down
And compassionately reaching
Earthwards drapes the notes on lemon boughs
Like golden flowers in the sun

So now though Joe is long departed
When the gentle zephyr shakes the trees in Kourion
The happy nymphs bathe in showers of mcelderry blossom
