Morning in the City
Can't wait for the Time of Lilacs!

Lilacs line the path to
Dreimäderlhaus at Mölkerbastei

Around the corner,
looking up at the Pasqualati-Haus
where Beethoven lived for many years

I walked past the Burgtheater into Volksgarten,
all the while dark thunder clouds churning,
waylaying beyond the rooftops,
angry remnants of last night's storms

No rain, though, I safely reach Minoritenplatz -
there, the window panes of the Chancellery
remain without reflections,
the sun cut momentarily off
by the storm clouds

  1. Vienna is so beautiful in spring time with all those flowering lilacs!

  2. This year everthing will be earlier, I´m sure! Chestnut is beginning to open buds of leaves. Check out, how many weeks earlier lilacs will bloom. I´m really exited about that....
    Have a nice spring day!

  3. Our lilacs should be blooming here soon.

  4. Beautiful, Merisi!

    We'll have to wait til May before lilacs bloom.

  5. so lovely, at least spring is somewhere ... eventually maybe soon it will be here

    To spring,


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
