School of the Piarists
Mozart in the City of Vienna

School of the Piarists
It is through this portal -
leading up from the square in front of the church of Maria Treu -
that the eldest son of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart stepped through
many times when he went to school here in the 1790s.
Every time I walk by I imagine Wolfgang Amadeus waiting
by those steps to pick up his son.
So far, I have missed him, but who knows,
one fine day ... I keep on looking.

  1. Perhaps Wolfgang was too busy composing to pick up his son from school.

  2. A most beautiful door! Keep looking, Merisi!
