How can I describe her?
The wretchedness, God, the wretchedness
And the suffering, the desperation
Of that poor unhappy creature -
The embarrassment, Clara.
Looking at that lonelyness,
Listening to all that self-pity...
(Another formation of Soldiers
takes us to the Garden)
The town -
It is remote, isn't it?
And provincial, don't you think?
And everything so brown:
The streets, the fields, the river even.
Of course there is the castle,
The ruined castle...
The castle garden.
The Colonel, the Doctor and Fosca enter
and stroll through the garden down to
Giorgio; music continues underneath. Last Update: June, 10th 2013
