Ode to a Lemon
"Out of lemon flowers
on the moonlight, love's
lashed and insatiable
sodden with fragrance,
the lemon tree's yellow
from the tree's planetarium."
"Ode al limone"
Da quei fiori
dalla luce della luna,
immerso nella fragranza,
dall'albero del limone il giallo,
dal suo planetario
discesero i limoni sulla terra.

Not with my lemon, pleeeease! :-)
Me too! It was a beautiful little tree, standing in one of the Campi, in the morning rain, the yellow fruits beckoning.
Thanks for coming by! :-)))

There was this old song which I use to listen to when I was a kid - lemon tree oh so pretty....I hope I got the lyrics right....as most of the time I do manage to butcher very nicely...lol...
"Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweetReplyDelete
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
Lemon tree very pretty and the lemon flower is sweet
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat."
(Lyrics from the Peter, Paul & Mary website, here.
