Postcard from a Faded Resort - Italian Sonnet
by Paganini Jones
Dear John, I chose an orange water ice today.
It tasted rather good, a pleasant change.
I like vanilla too. It's in their range.
The weather's been quite nice but now it's grey
And so I write to you, but what to say?
I hope it brightens up; I feel quite strange.
I've booked a trip by coach to visit Grange
And later on we'll hear a brass band play.
I rather wish, I think, that you were here.
I'm sure you'd love the beach, the food, the sun.
The roads are not so busy now. They're clear
Of traffic jams. There's parking by the pier.
It's almost time for tea. I have to run.
I love you so. I'll see you soon my dear.
