Here lay a fair fat land;
But now its townships, kirks, graveyards
Beneath bald hills of sand
Lie buried deep as Babylonian shards.
But gales may blow again;
And like a sand-glass turned about
The hills in a dry rain
Will flow away and the old land look out;
And where now hedgehog delves
And conies hollow their long caves
Houses will build themselves
And tombstones rewrite names on dead men’s graves
.Andrew Young

Winter came back..with a vengeance…I refuse to lose hope though…as the poet so aptly says “houses will build themselves”…trees will have leaves and flowers will bloom, though I despair of the young tulips

    The plant at the top in front of the light looks the liveliest in contrast to the rest that kinda look down in gloom. Though altogether looks like a transition from dark cold winter to the light of spring. Very lovely work Janis.

  • Thank you so much MuiLing…so happy you found hope in this painting…it’s meant to have that feeling..
