At the Theatre

Below the shining ceiling spanned above

Inside the tiny loges spread around

A young girl with her mother sitting down

Is waiting the beginning of the play.


She’s wearing a new dress she bought last week

With fancy haircut that she likes so much

While burbling water hits below the shore  

Where boats are waiting for a new day’s dawn.

Just here and there and only for a bit

To show the sun is up and lights the day.


We see the rocky mountains spread around

With green and scattered spots all over them

That are from lonely trees among the stones

Like spears raised from the forest to the top.


Few groups of houses s...
