The Catalan Lisp~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

The Catalan Lisp

Ana-Maria-Edulescu barcelona

“Barcelona” by Ana Maria Edulescu

softened sibilance

charming distinction

a lilting of grace-notes

touches the tongues

of poets and peasants

in liege to the pennon

of red yellow stripes

crown of aragon

ruling with sea-speak

of past thalassocracy

sweetened by language

of romance and empire

warm and seductive

as the balear sun

a language now given

expression in tangible

modernist forms

architectural phrases

of reverent eccentric

glissade by gaudí

la sagrada familia
