You're very welcome.

The second set of clues (above ^) refers to a short prose work, the style of which ought to indicate the author:

One Christmas was so much like another, in those years around the sea-town corner now and out of all sound except the distant speaking of the voices I sometimes hear a moment before sleep, that I can never remember whether it snowed for six days and six nights when I was twelve or whether it snowed for twelve days and twelve nights when I was six.

Sit back and enjoy fellow Welshman John Cale's take on the story from his 'Paris 1919' album:

...oh dear Eddie...way off base.

....However, in my defence, I do have a friend visiting and my mindset has become somewhat more tawdry than usual.

Clue?

EDIT: Hang on, is this the "orgasm in the restaurant scene" from...can't remember the name of the movie...?

If so, I dunno...Euripides' "The Bacchae", perhaps?

Is the movie When Harry met Sally? Not sure if that helps.

Since there are TWO pix of the event, I'll guess it's Yeats' "The Second Coming". Very Happy
