A poem by Francis Orray Ticknor

“In one room of this deserted mansion we came upon an old harpsichord
with a single unbroken string.  Evoking the last sound from it, we extracted
the key, which you will find herewith.” – Letter from the Old Dominion

Friday, February 23, 2018 - 4:47pm

You are beautiful and faded 
Like an old opera tune 
Played upon a harpsichord; 
Or like the sun-flooded silks 
Of an eighteenth-century boudoir. 
In your eyes 
Smoulder the fallen roses of outlived minutes,
