"ZU GALERIE" by Ana Maria Sarlat
My friend, Ana Maria Sarlat, wrote this poem for me, and I love it! Ana Maria is an incredible artist, a poet, and so much more... But first of all, she is an incredible, loyal friend, and for that I appreciate and love her very much.
Here it is....
An Original Oil on Canvas by artist Leonardo Severo.
THE GARDEN ON THE STREET OF INFINITY
IN THIS TOWN OF MANY TONGUES
COLLIDING WITH THE SCENT OF FOREIGN FUMES
AND INCENSE FROM HONG KONG
THE DUST OF MANY DESERTED LANDS
EMBEDDED ON THEIR FEET
THEY GATHER HERE UNITED
BY THE COMMON CORE BELIEF
AMID THE ASPHALT AND THE GARDEN
AND THE SOUNDS AND SIGHTS SO SWEET
THE POET AND THE ARTIST, THE COMMON FOLK AND SPARE
THE CRITICS AND THE WONDERERS
BUT MOSTLY THOSE THAT CARE
COME FORTH AND GATHER GALLANTLY
IN MERRIMENT AND GLEE
IN WISDOM, ART AND POETRY
IN OUR OWN "ZU GALERIE"
