At Lubec by Ségun Ògúntólá

Now, the autumn of my life

A portrait

Of beauty, of joy, my joy:

Today, Friday, late afternoon

Beethoven is in the background, calm

Titillating his notes

Seated, me, on the lovely chair by the window

Smiling at the world

Thinking about her

Giddily anticipating her arrival

Her weekend long visit

My love

A nymph no more

But still so beautiful

So bright

Heavenly her star eyes
