The Reflective Bridegroom?
"For several virtues
Have I liked several women; never any
With so full soul but some defect in her
Did quarrel with the noblest grace she owed. . ."
(Shakespeare, The Tempest)
Upper Belvedere Palace
Or are they limetrees?
Towards the Ménagerie Gardens
The silhouette of the golden cupola of the
Russian-Orthodox Cathedral of St. Nicholas
rises defiantly against a pewter thunderstorm sky.
And Here Comes the Bride!
