La Mouette


bored with her London self and life
with the role of dutiful
mother and wife

a fugitive
she arrives in Cornwall
at Navron
the family estate

seeking to escape
from that other life
that other Dona
the masquerade
that was no life at all

and the peace
that she craves
she finds it here
and yet
is it really the peace
that she seeks
or adventure
passion
danger
love

an enchanted creek
pirate ship
Frenchman - fugitive - kindred spirit
an artist - sketching a heron
La Mouette
adventure
passion
danger
and love

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
