The Four Winds

WIND of the North,
Wind of the Norland snows,
Wind of the winnowed skies, and sharp, clear stars,—
Blow cold and keen across the naked hills,
And crisp the lowland pools with crystal films,
And blur the casement squares with glittering ice,
But go not near my love.

Wind of the West,
Wind of the few, far clouds,
Wind of the gold and crimson sunset lands,-
Blow fresh and pure across the peaks and plains,
And broaden the blue spaces of the heavens,
And sway the grasses and the mountain pines,
But let my dear one rest.

Wind of the East,
Wind of the sunrise seas,
Wind of the clinging mists and gray, harsh rains,—
Blow moist and chill across the wastes of brine,
And shut the sun out, and the moon and stars,
And lash the boughs against the dripping eaves,
Yet keep thou from my love.

But thou, sweet wind!
Wind of the fragrant South,
Wind from the bowers of jasmine and of rose,—
Over magnolia blooms and lilied lakes
And flowering forests come with dewy wings,
And stir the petals at her feet, and kiss
The low mound where she lies.

The Allure of Vintage Film Photography

Our friends in social media are enamored with “Throwback Thursday” or the like to share images from the past.  This image is from our wedding film collection prior to moving to predominantly digital photography.  The light from this beautiful stained glass window was amazing and captured the glow, beauty  and solemnity of this occasion for this lovely bride.  The vintage gown and veil completed the portrait to make for a “forever” keepsake.  I have created a “Bridal Art on Canvas” Series in oil for these vintage photographs.

She wore two roses in her face, 
Two jewels in her e’en;
Her hair was crowned with sunset rays,

Her brows shone white between.

Nature’s Beauty in Vase

Adorned by their beauty, I again take a turn in the garden collecting the last of this year’s beautiful peonies for the summer porch and dining room table.  How lovely are the peonies all dressed up and waiting for the wonderful click of the cameras to capture their beauty for art on canvas.  They are the love flower that cheers the heart of the bride’s bouquet with the aroma of sweetness.  They are lovely, they are poetic.

Once in a dream I saw the flowers
That bud and bloom in Paradise;
More fair they are than waking eyes
Have seen in all this world of ours.
And faint the perfume-bearing rose,
And faint the lily on its stem,
And faint the perfect violet
Compared with them.

This is my latest for the Art on Canvas series for Florals which will be available for prints shortly at the site.
