Panos Jeranian - GREEN MELODY

From the scrap-book of tall trees,
Leaf by leaf, profiles are shed.
Each movement
Terminates a life-story
At the shaded close of whispers.

And the hues
On the day's lips
Are bristling words,
That sink
Glimpse by glimpse
To the darkest depths of our eyes.

At times we're somber
With the shadow
Of rose-red trees;
There --
Through the earliest
Memory of our eyes --
To compose
The melody of a leaf murmuring
softly.


PANOS JERANIAN
