Misc. Notes This revised version is a radical modification of the previous volume. Not much is retained except the title and its seminal idea as expressed in the opening poem, evoking the state of mind of a public park visitor whose attention is distracted by the sight of various animals as he walks around. Note : the present version contains approximations and blemishes that will be corrected shortly.

Misc. Comments

This set is a collage of pieces stemming from two different volumes, from which two were extracted (= distracted) as separate works : the Wacky Scherzo and The Swan's Skirl. The latter is quoted at the end of the third piece of the revised second volume in a shortened form (Swirling Swans)
