Not inspired by Esperanza, actually, but by another house in the same area built near the end of Hapgood’s career as an architect about 25 years after he designed Esperanza’s north end. It is a bit clunky, mostly because I tried to redirect it from its original!

Dinner Party
Resting in the lawn-green bowl
The pergola was wreathed
By honeysuckle and roses
And laughter rose beyond the lantern-light.
A gossamer thread leading back
To the shining house
At the dark woods’ edge
A swelling blossom
Of twilight gold
