Evening at Schönbrunn's Gloriette Café


Café Gloriette

Window reflections with angel

"Imagine leaning back in your chair and beholding
an aggregation of those weightless, buoyant babies above,
trailing their clouds of glory, casting smiles upon their lives.

From: "Putti in the Night", by Billy Collins
("Questions About Angels", University of Pittsburgh Press)

  1. A cafe inside Schönbrunn? That has to be the cafe nearest to Heaven, I think. Such a high ceiling... I can hear the spoons clinking against the cups... Beautiful.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
