Boat by Pier — Photo-Artistry by kenne

They were beautiful in the clear early light—
red, yellow, blue and green—
is all I wanted to say about them,
although for the rest of the day
I pictured a lighter version of myself
calling time through a little megaphone,
first to the months of the year,
then to the twelve apostles, all grimacing
as they leaned and pulled on the long wooden oars.

— from Brightly Colored Boats on the Banks of the Charles by Billy Collins
