Hanging Gardens

(Peter Lastima)

This is a torch song - of the kind sung, once, by the likes of Dean Martin or Tony Bennet or perhaps even Sinatra, in smoky night clubs, or, with a bit of adjustment, by Eartha Kitt or Ella Fitzgerald. The sequence of flight, pursuit and reconciliation is complete but here the setting is a classical one - the couple having found their way home to a Babylon set way back in antiquity.

We are complete: On these terraces of junipers, The city at our feet, How bittersweet, , For now I know Why these groves could never hold you, Why you shattered the tableau, And left me so, So long ago Chorus: My Odyssey, Has been to chase you and to pace you And be ready to embrace you Over mountains, down the valleys, Through the trees; Our Odyssey, With its canvases unfurled Of all the wonders of the world Has set you free, It seems to me Quite unafraid, You breathed the incense in the forest Of the pillars of the Maid, And would have stayed…. It was your star, Which led you on across the Hellespont And west through Skavala, To Attica To Attica Chorus And I pursued You through a violet-painted city Where I grazed your solitude, And was subdued We drank the wine, Where the statues of the goddesses Gaze down upon the shrines, Above the pines, Above the pines. Chorus And with delight, You saw the fires of the lighthouse Where the ocean met the night, The geese in flight Hand in hand We travelled south along the river XXXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXXXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXX XX XXX XX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXX XX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX X XXXXXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX
