Virginia Golden

Portola Valley, CA


Although I try hard,
to me the great Picasso
only paints blobs.

Whereas Opera
is a land of fantasy,
but not in English!

In Symphony Hall
the music is often lost
while greeting old friends.

When I am troubled
I return to Jane Austen,
Romance with reason.

Church from time to time
seems to reveal source of light …
Much darkness remains.
