What...Relish...Is This...How Runs The Stream? (For Miss S) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Shakespeare's words
thrown into

the open air

themselves into

a clutch
of starlings

an audience.


From the open air production of TWELFTH NIGHT last night...this June 13th at Regent's Park.

I adore all the non actors...butterflies and moths caught in a spotlight...a pigeon swoops across a front row and steals the audience's interest...each feather perfect and clear seen so near. And my favourtie of the night...what relish is this...the Bard's words metamorphising into a clutch of starlings that stole my heart and became these words.

    What a very charming thought...thoughts tossed into the open air, being snatched up by those greedy gobblers! I love this whole idea...the air, the words, you and Gina being there, gobbling up those words just like the birds! As I said, a charmer! (Report) Reply
