Artist's Description


Serene, I fold my hands and wait,
Nor care for wind, nor tide, nor sea;
I rave no more ’gainst time or fate,
For lo! my own shall come to me
.

I stay my haste, I make delays,
For what avails this eager pace?
I stand amid the eternal ways,
And what is mine shall know my face
.

Asleep, awake, by night or day,
The friends I seek are seeking me;
No wind can drive my bark astray,
Nor change the tide of destiny
.

What matter if I stand alone?
I wait with joy the coming years;
My heart shall reap where it hath sown,
And garner up its fruit of tears
.

The waters know their own and draw
The brook that springs in yonder height;
So flows the good with equal law
Unto the soul of pure delight
.

The stars come nightly to the sky;
The tidal wave unto the sea;
Nor time, nor space, nor deep, nor high,
Can keep my own away from me
. …John Burroughs

This poem says so much about the power of waiting and not give in to despair…the stars come very night, the tides never fail, friends you are seeking are already looking for you…
The storm last week told us a lot about the unexpectedness of nature and it’s strength, it’s power to destroy..but the sun shone again and things dried out…"so flows the good with equal law
"

Waiting in the rain at night, for the bus that never seems to come…an Abstract in Gouache on Handmade Paper…
