Ode to Pink Nymphaea

Dr Abe V Rotor
               Pink Nymphaea in acrylic (22" x 26") AVR 2012 

You bring life and joy to a lonely old pond,  
     bouquet to the happy at heart;
You bring nostalgia to many promenades,
     and model to fashion and art.

You are like gems strewn in countless sparkles
     in Claude Monet's great masterpiece;
You rise from the murk and bring down the rainbow
     and catch the passing morning breeze.   

You cover the pond with odd heart-shape foliage
     and flowers in glorious spray;
You make an Eden in some forgotten corner 
     where passersby would wish to stay. ~
