THE GREEN TURTLE BY MARIA CASSIA

THE GREEN TURTLE

As it pass by the river, the green turtle saw
The truth that surprised her by the bough
An old turtle moving slow as waves tow--
Gazing at the ripples of a turtle as new.

Fascinated by the scene encircle the river!
An enigma as the turtle cross it's paths,
Strew some red petals to the shore---
Alas, the other responded with a smile.

The green turtle went away so sad---
The turtle whom she likes found anew,
It was never her, she sighed--another!
Covered herself in shame withdraw from
the crowd.

Misty-eyed saw a bluish turtle who
strolled by the shore; another one!
"Why are you blue, green turtle?"
She kept quiet but Blue understood!

Come green turtle, he is not for you--
We will stroll by the sandy shore, me
And you alone. Have you not known
That I like you long long time ago!

Let me come with you, today and
tomorrow. So that my color will
now be reddish-pink, not green
Come and I will forget him today!
