As You Wish, If …

The Battle for Bellosguardo

Dear Huguette,

I regret

Your reclusivity

And desire

To conspire

With your exclusivity.

Should your art

Ever part

From lovely Bellosguardo?

Did you change,


Whom it all would be left to?



Indelibly intertwined.

Did you use

Secret clues

That one day we will find?

Code breakers,

Law makers,

Hoping they can read your thoughts.



Hopefully pond’ring their oughts.

We would do

That which you

Wished, if … if only we knew.
