“I will thank you to remember Miss Scarlet while this piece may not be technically Irish in tonality and content,
it is nevertheless penned from my Irish heart. Moreover, my propensity to write and talk is only outweighed by
my capacity to drink. And, Frankly ‘My Dear’. . . I don’t give a d@!!. Slàinte!”

This Picture That Is You . . .
(A poem by Walter Magill © Copyright 2003)

I pictured you in portrait
On the canvas of my mind.
I coloured you in passion
Painting lips of ruby wine.
Your hair I sprayed with stardust
Your eyes an earthy hue.
And I framed it in my reverie
This picture that is you.
