WALKABOUTSVERSE 3 OF 230

Poem 3 of 230:  PICTURES

Photographs and, more so, painted-
    Pictures of people and places,
For ends, involve in some cases
    Adjustment of what was gathered.

With restrained artistic licence
    (To make metre and rhyme with sense),
All matters related here -
    Save the love-songs, to be clear -
Did happen to me, no fear;
    And time-ordered they appear.

(C) David Franks 2003
