Ponchielli, Religion Too

A steel spoon
Over an oak table,
Wine refracting
Lamplight red on
Two cookies in a
Blue glass bowl--
1952 recording,
Callas, "La
Gioconda" on the
Radio-- who knows
If I have a soul?


  1. Whenever I see or hear Ponchielli, I think of Disney's "Fantasia"--sorry for that distraction in an otherwise lovely experience ere!

  2. Willie,

    You're right! "Dance of the Hours".Happily, last night's broadcast didn't rattle the castle down, but I was wondering how all these elephants got in!
