SUMMERTIME LADY



After «Wintertime Lady» (see 1.01.2015):
SUMMERTIME LADY

The Sainte Victoire Ridge in summer
(Aix-en-Provence)



Against the milky sky
that weighs on the woods
she hoists her heavy folds
above the sleepy hills.

She dozes
torpid
thick and chalky

She has done
ruling over plains
commanding
the chimneys of Gardanne

She is a dead volcano
a white-haired woman
she is no longer Cézanne’s.
