Under the pomegranate tree

Frieda Groffy - 2008-03-10

Sitting in lazy joyfulness
Under the pomegranate tree
His branches almost touching the
Earth under the weight of the fruits
Birds and butterflies fluttering around
A curious little lizard inspecting
My big toe in total trust of me
Thinking about you my daydreams
Meet my night dreams and the love
inside me starts playing the big drum
for you know oh so well, my darling
you make me shine like nobody can
just like the African sun does
with the silver jewelry I wear
