The Princess and the Dragon, Paolo Uccello
. . .but to go round the world
and play at give and take with giants and dragons and monsters,
and hear hissings and roarings and bellowings and howlings,
and even all of this would be lavender,
if we had not to reckon with Yanguesans and enchanted Moors.
Miguel de Cervantes
Samuel Barber's Adagio for Strings
...this might be the sound of Lavender.
