Poetry Magnum Opus



Recommended Posts

Holding a mirror with an 
Angel on
His back William Blake
Walked on tightrope between
Heaven and earth, he could
Only see wings but she
Would track his visions
Reflected. Blake balanced
Public ridicule with his
Artistic pursuit.

Van Gogh would rise to
Deal with his mistress
In all her guises.
John Clare would whisper
His confessions to field
And forest, the sky 
His shield, nature an
Infinite resource.

Seriously, Barry. Blake has nothing on you. A "Tyger"? Comeon. Van Gogh -- now, there's an artist who did it all for something. And Clare -- I can't even reach that. 

Barry, this is no vision. This is your life.

Thoughtful reflection on three artists insufficiently appreciated in their time, the compulsion of their visions.  Well crafted, Barry.
