MH - Wish I'd Written That...

I've decided to return to the emperor's court
once more I shall see if it's possible to live there
I could stay here in this remote province
under the full sweet leaves of the sycamore
and the gentle rule of sickly nepotists

Zbigniew Herbert, "The Return of the Proconsul"
