Sonetto Romantico

Orange grove fragrances dominate my senses

Seville’s humid heat almost overpowers

Landscape appears through tangerine lenses

Revealing meadow adorned with multiple flowers 


Alcazar de Sevilla with courtyard and towers

Is where we met, albeit by pure chance

In a single fleeting second, seeming like hours

We immediately recognised instant romance


Unadulterated passion, not a loose dalliance

Madly in love, hugged and kissed on tiled patio

Tightly embracing, young bodies in alliance

Abruptly concluded by a man named Matteo


He said you betrayed him again and again

I believed it was love, but you only caused pain

Good rhyming, though I suspect poetic licence for Matteo!
