Old Photographs (part three)

marriageShe left the gloom and darkness
behind her,
to make Africa her home.
Wild animals on the open plains
were her delight
and a sun forever shining!

It was adventure
she sought,
far from where she called home,
a better life they said,
away from post war woes.

Winter became a memory
under the African sun!

He saw her from a distance
on the wards
while visiting a sick friend.
Her blue eyes sparkled
and somehow he knew
right then,
she would be his.

She seemed demure at first
with strikingly good looks,
her red hair enchanted him.
A young Engineer
on an adventure
of his own.

They married within the year
when love
was in full bloom!
