One Short Poem about a Painting

watteau-pelerinage-cythère-f

L’Embarquement pour Cythère (Louvre)
All the elements of a daydream of leisure
fill this fête galante painted by Watteau: sea, an
island, everything lush, and the favonian
spirit of pink cupids borne aloft by pleasure.

    Cool, thanks.

  2. Wallace Stevens says:

    He was glad he had written his poems.
    They were of a remembered time
    Or of something seen that he liked.
