Anither glorious post. My thanks. The Rembrandt makes me think that Rabbi Aristotle is blessing Homer's head. -- DL

Beethoven’s Violin Sonata #9
is a nice way to start the morning
and hard to top
though as I climb into the car
after swimming my twenty-four laps
Mozart’s 40th starts
and I have a virtual date
at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
where Alec is lecturing on Seurat,
still life (Fantin-Latour, William Merritt Chase),
and the faux naturalism
of Jules Bastien-Lepage’s Joan of Arc (1879)
which I know I’m not supposed to like
but I can’t help myself

on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
