After the Easter Feast
Robert Walton


Iíll place jasmine blossoms
Upon my eyelids ó
The new blooms,
Pink as first light
At sunrise
And the white ones,
Not cold like snow,
Or pale as clouds,
But blushing warm,
Their scent like †
Promises kept,
Like gentle fingers
Caressing ó
To ease me past
Phylís lemon pie
Into my well deserved

The imagery is exquisite in this witty visual poem. Favorite lines: To ease me past Phyls lemon pie Into my well deserved nap.
