Treasure Island

Margaret Alice Second

(24 January 1961 / South Africa)

In Pink And Blue [REVISED]


A pink umbrella equates
to rose-coloured glasses;
Hanlie grins - says your
poncho-burka will keep
you safe from the rain

in zenith-blue oversized
jersey & lilac scarf I’m
ready to venture out as
symptoms of allergy try
to ruin this purple day

what is my song, shall I
sing “Could have danced
all night” like yesterday -
or “..and with every falling
drop I Love You More” -

where shall I go - bought
a pink shoelace to replace
the black lanyard I needed
around my neck for keeping
my entry card safe

no dark colour allowed
to spoil an electric effect
of dreams blooming in
delicious hues of pink,
purple and blue

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
