Juliet -- Hilaire Belloc

Guest poem submitted by Anustup Datta :
(Poem #315) Juliet
How did the party go in Portman Square?
I cannot tell you: Juliet was not there.

And how did Lady Gaster's party go?
Juliet was next to me and I do not know.
-- Hilaire Belloc
... I wanted to send just two poems, but came across this beauty from
Belloc, who has been covered in some detail on the group. He is not know
for romantic verse, but the current poem is memorable because of its
brevity and trenchant insight. Really liked it - don't know why I
haven't come across it earlier.

Anustup.

Aside: one of the fringe benefits of running the Minstrels is that we
get to discover lots of lovely poems (like today's little gem) which we
haven't read before. Come to think of it, that's not a fringe benefit,
that's one of the main reasons we keep the show running. That, and the
fact that it's fun to do :-)

Belloc has indeed been covered in some detail on the Minstrels; some
previous poems of his to have featured include

'October', poem #226
'Tarantella', poem #294
'The Hippopotamus', poem #124

Another Aside: You should all listen to Little Feat's song 'Juliette',
on their classic 1973 album, 'Dixie Chicken'.
