On “In a House Besieged”

Organ pipes in the CMA’s Gartner Auditorium

“Now we have moved into the upper rooms of the house and stand at the window watching the fish flash through the branches of our peach tree. An eel looks out from below our wheelbarrow.”

“She likes to lie and watch the darkness come down into the woods,though tonight, as sometimes before, she does not really watch,or though her eyes rest on the darkening woods, she is not so much watching as waiting, and often, now, feels she is waiting.”

On “The Memory of Rain”
