Misty Blue Visions of Days Gone By - EXPLORED
Explored January 30, 2009, #70. Thank YOU!
Ode to Manaus, Brazil
Once an Empress of Elegance,
robed in linens and pearls,
she ruled both sides of the great waters.
Now, a dowager in faded finery,
misty blue visions of days gone by.
Is there none, even one,
who will dry her confetti tears?
Or will she weep,
her anguish rising with the tides?
(Do I love Manaus, Brazil? Oh, yes! I hope to encourage others to find a reason to love this faded old beauty, too.)
