Todays' poem

Since the workshop with poets and tutors Ian Duhig and Julia Copus, the verse had been a mystery, for Latin lies at the antipode of Japanese on my language map. A poem 'Nightingale: A Gloss' by Paisley Rekdal triggered re-reading of the verse on Ovid, Heroides XIX, 90. In particular, a part 'Dusk' has an elaborate, refined structure in points of stress, rhyming, and feminine/masculine ending in individual lines. In the stanza of I stand ..., the pace is airy, slow down, then, back to the rhyming triplets and couplet. This finally ends in a freezed state. Delicate beauty.
