Columbine and Harlequin


Pennants flying in the breeze

Pastel colours

For pantomime dancers

Hiding behind peacock tails.

Pierrot smiles with his large red mouth

And Harlequin kisses

Columbine in an old-fashioned garden.


Flowers of grace and

Ancient overtones

Add mystery to

Undertones of

Fragrance and finesse


Pink and White Columbine
