A scene from Shakespeare - a young couple are in abit of frouble with one another - we find them in a woodland setting in a state of dire confrontation - the young woman earnestly hands an unsheathed swordto her lover, at the same time bareing her breast - strike me here she seems to be saying.He on the other hand is completely dismayed by this turn of events - with a distant look in his eye he compulsively grips the sheath of his sword - a hand written note lies nearby on the path - a sylvan glade at rear left. (Jim Hahn 01/17/95)
