The Lovers in the Sun

Mary and Jane were the lovers in the sun.

The more they met the brighter was the light.

It was too much to swallow for those

Who could only dream about their warmth.

Jealousy filled the garden with the lying frogs

And rumors trod down their smiling rose.

When everything was ruined except the bodies

They rowed the boat behind the golden horizon

And they went down with the blessing sun.

Lovers in the Sun

Lovers in the Sun2002 by Yelling Rosa

I drew this picture, Lovers in the Sun, in 2002. It was black and white but I added colors using Gimp 2.6 software and different filters in May 2015.

    The poem again is fantastic, and to have it complemented with your drawing is perfect…your added colors and shades match the final words so well “They rowed the boat behind the golden horizon, And they went down with the blessing sun.” Beautiful.
