Mistletoe at Schönbrunn Park
Vienna at Christmastime

Mistletoe
Schönbrunn Park

If she had been the Mistletoe
And I had been the Rose --
How gay upon your table
My velvet life to close --
Since I am of the Druid,
And she is of the dew --
I'll deck Tradition's buttonhole --
And send the Rose to you.
(Emily Dickinson)

  4. Any chance one could kiss Mozart or Johan Strauss there?

  5. Merisi, I would love to see a photo of knowing folks having a special Christmas kiss or three under this tree. Perhaps strolling potential kissing couples have only eyes for each other and do not look up.

    1. Frances,
      you comment made me chuckle, and here is why:
      There are so many trees with mistletoe around Vienna, even in Inner City parks, it would be one big Kiss Feast if everyone snatched his or her partner for a kiss! ;-)
