Throwback Thursday

NEW to my blog- Throwback Thursdays!

Each Thursday I’ll be posting some older pieces or photos for a little nostalgia.

For this first one, some pieces back from 2011!

From the poem, “O Me! O Life!”

O Me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring;

Of the endless trains of the faithless – of cities fill’d with the foolish;

Of myself forever reproaching myself, (for who more foolish than I, and who more faithless?)

Of eyes that vainly crave the light – of the objects mean – of the struggle ever renew’d;

Of the poor results of all – of the plodding and sordid crowds I see around me;

Of the empty and useless years of the rest – with the rest me intertwined;

The questions, O me! so sad recurring – What good  amid these, O me, O life?

Answer.

That you are here – that life exists, and identity;

That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.”

Lastly, a handful of rings in front of one of my old watercolour paintings-
