Water Hyacinth

(With obvious apologies to Bob Orr)

Water Hyacinth 2
Originally uploaded by Adagio.

From you I learnt
to cover my heart.
My foolish heart
that had never
worn a hat.
even this
generous panama
fashioned from
the delicate fibres
of water hyacinth
trimmed with
similarly coloured silk
fails to wholly obscure
residues of the feeling
you first inspired.
