Yellow sunshine in a drop

In the backyard of the blue house a vibrant bed of grass covers the ground.

Wispy dandelions fly across, with no particular path

In the midst of a balmy summer day.

And in the centre of the yard

Stands a lemon tree

Tall and dense, and the deepest green

With glazed, murmuring tender leaves.

Swallowing golden drops of light

Zesty flavours of the warm season spread across the yard.

Every summer when the lemon tree blooms

The sun comes down to the backyard of the blue house

And on the bed of misty grass falls-

Yellow sunshine in a drop.


Hear me recite this poem, hit play!

    “Yellow sunshine in a drop” – how beautiful that sounds. Reminds me of the poem by Blake ‘To see a world in a grain of sand’…

    The words and the picture reminded me of my trip to Italy. We had gone for a holiday and our homestay was in a lemon orchard
