"A something in a summer's Day
As slow her flambeaux burn away
Which solemnizes me.

A something in a summer's noon—
A depth—an Azure—a perfume—
Transcending ecstasy."

(Emily Dickinson)

  1. I love this! The photo has an old feeling to it, like it was taken decades ago.

    1. I had only my phone camera, but I followed the family for some time, until I finally managed to snap a picture of the girl.

  5. The girl is using a stick, so I imagine that she may be a slim, elegant, "woman of a certain age"!
    A familiar sight in Vienna :)
