At Lubec

Now, the autumn of my life
a portrait
of beauty, of joy, my joy:
Today, Friday, late afternoon
Beethoven is in the background calm
titillating his notes
seated me on the lovely chair by the window
smiling at the world
thinking about her
giddily anticipating her arrival
her weekend long visit
my love
a nymph no more
but still so beautiful
so bright
heavenly her star eyes
