Budapest recalled

Thorns, John Lyons  (toothpicks aith acrylic)

Budapest recalled

Between Buda and Pest
on a pleasure boat
sailing the Danube
as snow fell

my hands frozen
my teeth chattering
in the cold night
and you beside me

One more memory
to add to our stock
of shared moments
of love and kisses

but time marches
to a drum tap
and all things pass
in this field of battle

John Lyons
