Shadows, Stars and Light

"The stars about the beautiful moon again hide their radiant shapes,
when she is full and shines at her brightest on all the earth"

Sappho (a long time ago...)

"Shadows cast by the street light
under the stars,
the head is tilted back,
the long shadow of the legs
presumes a world taken for granted
on which the cricket trills"

William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
