We spent another two weeks in Paphos in early December. It was lovely to feel the sun on our backs!
T O T H E S U N
On this cool, yet sunny day
Far from England, frosty shore
‘Contemplate sun’s warming ray’
Ageing limbs cry out for more!
Eve approaching, falling sun
Bathes the ocean with its light
Wagtails playing, having fun
Feast my eyes, a wondrous sight
Like a glowing football shine
Warm the pool, with leaves so full
England rains, yet here still fine
Night falls fast, my heart-strings pull
As this orb melts in’ the sea
Shadows falling on the pool….
Add an air of mysteree
To this ev’ning calm and cool
Final splash of colour bright
Sea extinguishes the flame
Sky it yields to ghostly night
Whispering Creator’s name!
Sun… Return to warm my bones
Soothe me with your fingers’ balm
Lead me to world’s peaceful zones
Far away from stress and harm… Next Day…
Sipping Leon with my friends
Fine tavern, mirth and food
Sunshine here, it rarely ends
So relaxed.. my Cyprus mood! For all our Cyprus friends xxxx
