Halperin, Richard W.
A brilliant day. We walked the village and the shore.
Locals, children, dogs.
No Yeatses, no Pollexfens, but one could feel the draw.
You wore a straw hat to protect you from the sun.
Ridiculous if one thinks about it:
A straw hat versus the sun.
The sun won.
Two years later you died.
Why is it that Paris, Dublin, so seldom return?
A glorious Rosenkavalier we heard at the Met returns often.
Colour, mass, light.
