All you need is love-Painting by Violetta -Poem by Plein Aire Cottage Artist

This year's painting will be the work of Artist Violetta and her painting is titled All You Need is Love Helen Tilston and Mary Rose Holmes have worked jointly in writing a peom to accompany the painting. Painting will be auctioned at Valentine's Dance, February 14 2009 at City Hall, Indian Rocks Beach. This sold out annual event is pure class.

All You Need is Love

The sun has set and the Gulf is aglow
The sky is magenta with touches of gold

The shorebirds have bid us goodnight in their high trill
My darling wraps her shawl and feels a cool chill.

Tonight it is alfresco dining and our little table for two
The ocean is beginning to shimmer...it is a soft shade of blue

We chat and reminisce of perfect days gone before
and our cadence is in rythem with the waves as they lap gently upon the shore

The Harvest Moon suddently appears...and the glimmer and the shimmer..
and the silver of the Gulf....Shhh!!! Listen!!! "Is that a Violin I hear, my love"-
"Yes darling; they are plahying our song "All you need is love"

They slip off their sandles and waltz beneath the moonlight
and he sings in her ear

"All you need is love, all you need is love love is all you need"
