Winter Concert


                And the whole city sleeping drifts . . .

                like a lost airship


                of the immense mystery

                           —Lawrence Ferlinghetti


Winter Concert

That—as sweet notes—

the raindrops


this cold evening.



the lights of the shop-windows

as always tell

 their illusory tales.


We walk in silence

strangers, distracted

while the city

oddly empty

wraps us up in a damp embrace.


Lidia Chiarelli
