A scene from Shakespeare - at a big party the King flirts seriously with a beautiful but none the less shy lady in waiting - the attention given to her does not go unnoticed, especially by the other females - a Cardinal with a youthful companion stands nearby - a child helter-skelters pick roses - a gold headed shepherds crook and a black mask lie at the couple's feet. (Jim Hahn 01/17/95)
