Give this artwork a title and I'll give it away!

Click on Image to Enlarge
A few weeks ago, I painted this oil sketch as an experiment on handmade paper. My idea was about "trumpets" and there are 3 kinds of trumpets in this image. I will give this little 7 5/8" x 8 5/8" painting away to the person who gives me the perfect title for it. Rules: Use the comments section of this blog to enter this contest. Leave only ONE comment per person, but you may submit up to 3 possible titles in your comment area. Be creative, be poetic and be funny. I will announce the winner on Sunday October 4, 2009 on my blog at 6pm pacific time and ask that person to get in touch with me by email. Thanks in advance for participating in my little contest!
Important: You'll have until 12 noon (pacific time) Oct. 4 to leave your submission on my blog.

the white clown of winter is blasted by the trumpets of spring: allegory with pussy number 1.

The morning star as a white clown heralds the naked dawn and her grey pussycat of fog


with her hair still wet from a shower of nectar, spring steps on the stops of the underworld's trumpets:Pierrot following.
