Second Letter lyrics

Second Letter

Clara
Giorgio...
I, too, have cried inside.
Both
You must not be ashamed of your tears.
Clara
I love you for your tears.
Both
Your absence only makes my love grow stronger.
And when I cannot bear it any longer -

(We hear another scream come from upstairs.
Music stops as Giorgio rises, concerned; the
others continue to eat, unfazed.)

Colonel
Don't be alarmed. It's my cousin. I am so accustomed to her
outbursts that I forget how unsettling they must be to a newcomer.
My apologies for not warning you.
Doctor
She's not been having a good day. And a doctor is always expected
to help hurt, even when there is nothing one can possibly do.
Torasso
More lamb please.
Doctor
(to Lombardi)
I've noticed you finally managed to track down some tarragon.
Lombardi
Yes, I'm glad you approved...
(Another scream; the Colonel looks to the Doctor)
Colonel
Doctor.
Doctor
Excuse me.
(He wearily rises and crosses to the stairs, which he climbs.)
Barri
Sergeant, are there any more carrots?
Lombardi
Seconds for you, Lieutenant? Can I take that as a compliment?
Barri
No, Sergeant, they're for my horses.
(Laughter. Torasso gives Giorgio a slap
on the back. Giorgio is not amused.)
Colonel
In time, Captain Bacchetti, you too will get used
to life amongst us.
(Snare drums; everyone gets up. Clara enters while the
soldiers formate to a march. Clara sings from another letter,
accompanied chiefly by drums and sporadic bugle calls)
