(Sheet music in button). I don't live in an old enough area of the world to have castles and cathedrals looming in the landscape, but there are still some "urban artifacts" with an air of mystery to them. Last year, I discovered a curious terraced area in a little-used park with bricks falling out, and weeds growing through the pavement cracks. It seems to have been originally intended as a checkers or chess playing area that I doubt was ever used as intended. It is rather sad, but while there I watched a local dove searching around the low walls and I could hear other bird sounds, so it was sunny and peaceful. The music is trying to supply some ghostly players pondering their imaginary strategy, then making sudden risky "moves".
