D-Day in Malta:::co-write

We met in Valletta city on a fine November day Introductions...hugs and kisses; we got talking straight away. All agreed to go sight-seeing – architecture , harbour view Made a stop to buy an ice-cream where there is a constant queue . We strolled on and at Cordina’s chose al fresco to sit down Next to regal Queen Victoria, a stone lady with a crown. Drinks were ordered and pastizzi, which were followed by some cakes Freshly baked and appetizing, all adorned with chocolate flakes. We were served by cherub Fabio busy running out and in Second time the badge said Mario, then we found that he’s his twin. Jan and hubby soaked the sunshine, the Calluses hugged the shade Those around spoke multilingual, a musician plied his trade. We stayed there and spoke for ages, watched the tourists walking by. Valentina took our photos; she is young and sweet as pie. Jan and Bob will be returning in two years on Malta’s shore Although Maurice has predicted it will be a year before! They will then be celebrating married bliss with silver ware All on Soup will be invited; this occasion is to share. That’s a promise made for keeping – friends will meet for sure once more We shall have some cake and snickers; sweet surprises lie in store! -------------------------------------------------------------------- Fun poem ~ co-written by Paul-Jan-Valentina on 2/11/2014

Light poetry makes for a good read; no great heights of poetry are expected and the reader accepts what's on offer without reservations! Txs for your warm visit. // paul

Hi there Paul. What a delightful read. I was in Valletta last night too and i can almost feel your steps and the delight that is Cafe Cordina opposite the regal Biblioteca. Thank you for the lovely poem.

Dear Paul, I'm so happy you and Jan had a chance to meet and enjoy the sites in Malta. With so many friends on the Soup, we all have people to meet no matter where we go. You had me giggling with the Fabio/Mario twins. Thank you for sharing this special visit with us. I feel like I was there with you - and wish I had been! Awesome collaboration for all three of you! Love, Carolyn
