PARASOL

 

Today I saw you

On the sunny side

Of the road

Smiling and waving

Until a pedestrian jostled you

And you scuttled across

To join me the other side

A pool of gloom –

Shouldn’t have spoken

About Mother’s death –

Until you remembered

An urgent appointment

Escaping the nick of time

 from the shady side,

to enjoy the rest of the day

in full sun,

your sunhat to protect you

from its overpowering rays.

 

AEROMWY  THOMAS
