Don Quixote

It’s the birthday of Miguel de Cervantes.

Maybe. We’re not sure. Near Madrid, 1547,

but no sure day for this author

of that first modern novel quixotically questing

for chivalry’s grail lost to this world.

 

ddddd

Pablo Picasso’s simple painting of Don Quixote de la Mancha, his horse Rocinante, his squire Sancho Panza with his donkey Dapple, the sun, and several windmills.
