A love in verse

By the Aegean

Performed by
Tina Harris

Three boats ride at anchor in the calm night

Warning lights winking without respite

And the far headlands to left and right

Harbour the sea

Lapping under where we

From our balcony

Watch for the dawn

Ouzo that clouds when water’s poured in

Cigarettes in the half dark as dawn’s sighs begin:

The streaks in the east and that rattling din

Of fishing boats, early

Skies become pearly

Dawn with my girlie

By the Aegean 


Still in Bud

Summer’s last day it might be said

Holidays end, soon schools return

Then for another spring we yearn...

Life Redeemed

I see the way you look 

An angel must have prayed!

I eat the food you cook...
