THE BARON IN THE TREES

(after Calvino)


Cosimo is up a tree
living among oaks,
eucalpytus, sweet chestnuts
and copper beeches.

The black of the Spanish contingent
hanging over boughs like so many Goyescas.

Minutes turn to years;
inventive, he builds tree-houses,
stationed at intervals in the woods
like forts in a Roman wall.

Standing on a branch, a bird in the hand,
motionless for hours.

He misses nothing of ordinary life
in his arboreal existence,
conducting a lengthy courtship
with a young woman in the garden below;
apples on his breath, sinewy
green hands.

... the colour of art, the elegance of literature, the magic of Hollywood... just like that first evening in a Devon longhouse one cold November night... !! :)) Oh for a sip of that Buckfast nectar again! Moi aussi non plus, mon ami! Merci bien! Kate xx

So interesting, and with imagery that causes me to "Picture" the scenes.
