Proust and Vermeer

by B. Z. Niditch

In a precious enlightenment
from the sun at Delft
our mind pulls back
from a canal of time
brighter than a memory
with a Dutch master
and French novelist
drinking from a Chinese tea glass
with a fresh madeleine
met with yellow reflections
from the windows
remembered of a still life
in a lemony-sprinkled moment
