       Back to the magical haunts of my youth.

    dotsUniversity Housedots

    Almost in control
    Merely a signature between me and University House.

    An exquisite setting is University House for an elegant suit and a plain white shirt.

    I am excited. I return to the magic of my youth, but more in control.

    University House will seep into me, informing my mood, my sensibility, with elegant spaciousness. Indeed I am spacious.

    Built during the Cold War with meters thick walls to withstand an atomic blast, today resists the vulgar, the cheap, and stands testament to a more gracious time.

    I shall become more gracious beside the pond in the sunshine under the trees.

    I can't help feeling this is more than I deserve - but still I am excited. It is as though I am gathering all my girlfriends in one place still in love.

    From University House I shall row out into Lake Burley Griffin, and disappear into the unbearable light.

      Did you get a job teaching at a university? if so , that's quite cool. Good luck on your endeavors.
    As lori_tab said the imagery is great and I love the idea of gathering my loves all in one place... or the feeling.

      I appreciate the picture. Getting a literal visual behind the written word is a plus. The poem stands on its own, I can imagine this place without any visual, and yet the detail made this not just a set of ponderances but something personal and real. Defined not just by lovely text, but reality itself. I enjoy that considering this place is mostly aliases and mystery. Much is left to the imagination ( and I am not complaining) but this made it all the more endearing.
