Lisbon 36

imgp0676

It was thirty six in Lisbon
when we climbed up to St Jorge
An eleventh century castle
built by Moors above the gorge

But it was cool beneath the olive trees
inside the castle walls
taking pictures of the things we saw
and marvelling at it all

The view was simply stunning
the Tejo river to the fore
the orange roofs of houses
churches, ruins and much more

Then later on we found a lift
which reduced much of the climb
Took us quickly to the town
for longer shopping time

Lisbon was immensely hot
but beautiful as well
Another place we really loved
these words will always tell
