Painter Thought Felt Meant?

artist painter
are you alone
in your mind
painting pictures?

later will come
flocks tourists
to graze upon
your lent landscapes?

later will come
sightseers to feed
upon raw images
you splash upon pages?

later will come
revisionists to tell
public what
painter thought

felt meant?

    Yes Michael many times we have been told what words meant, sometimes the tellers even get it right :) The artist knows, critics perceive or invent, readers rare take words which echo with truth into their souls; for such readers we write :) (Report) Reply

    I was one of the defiant declined scholar chains, I had opinions, based with reason quotes, choose exam questions, university lectures with care. Especially listened read original prose poetry, weighed the words :) Many times we had these conversations; may there be many more :) (Report) Reply

    Yea, welcome to the age of interpretation :)
    Create Collaborate Present

    first define and then command
    few have as yet defiant declined
    an invitation to scholar chains

    frame framed the refrain
    create collaborate present

    reverberate elaborate evaporate
    they sent we went we were spent
    too cheaply still dearly paid
    for uni certi -ate -ation crussade

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
