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.
