Theseus and the Minotaur from the Palazzo dei Diamanti ‘Theseus Amazed’ and Other Poetry by Manfred von Pentz The Society July 27, 2019 Beauty, Culture, Poetry 1 Comment Theseus Amazed Around corners through archway and gate Sensing forever the enemy’s mind Poised to avenge the innocents’ fate But a mirror was all I did find. The Adept A handful of pollen flung into the light A time and a space and sun and night … An interesting journey, but hardship galore A clear perception of wrong and of right A host of beautiful things to adore And in the end to be all this… and more! Manfred von Pentz began his career in advertising and the graphic arts. In the 70s and 80s he developed touristic condominiums in Spain, then retired to Italy and started to paint and to write. He has published a novel The Crimson Goddess. His paintings are available as posters.
