Programme Note:

We lived in a pocket of Time.



It was close, it was warm.



Along the dark seam of the river



the houses, the barns, the two churches, hid like white crumbs



in a fluff of gray willows and elms, til Time made one of his



gestures; his nails scratched the shingled roof. Roughly his hand



reached in,



and tumbled us out.







-Elizabeth Bishop, mid-1950s
