89/100 The old actor in Athens

The manager said, ‘If you want to stay on,
Sweep up the empty grape-skins with broom and pan
When the curtain’s down
And the crowd goes off to the wine shops in the town.'
[from The old actor in Athens, George Mackay Brown, The wreck of the Archangel]

  1. Really love Sandra's writing and her art.
    Have spent a rainy morning looking through her prints - it's like wandering round a top art gallery. Inspiring.
    Thank you Sandra.
