Timo Schmitz: “Orange Sky in July” (2013)

A red rose in my hand,

In July’s warm care,

Would be a dream – no more sad,

If July just dared.

A white innocent one,

So much things I can’t tell,

Nothing you have done,

Nothing you did well.

Just a black dress, you wore,

And you are so far away,

Just that taste that I adore,

And green smells the day.

When I heard about it,

My little world crashed,

Would the pink one just fit,

Yet, the hope you just smashed.

I have a red rose in my hand,

In a July’s evening,

Hope a chance you will grant,

Anyways, I don’t want to talk.
