And shadowy after-images
Where the artist rolled over and back,

Over and back,

We are the lithograph of God's Image....We are the silkscreen of God's Image.... you've said it clear that we are godly....even being godly... you've again clearly said 'The harder the life The more the Image comes through! '....the second stanza stands out...I like it..thanks

Another exquisitely maintained extended metaphor (or even two) from Lillian. Every detail seems completely appropriate, and beautifully expressed.

A truly beautiful and perfect example of an adeptly crafted extended metaphor - I especially like the silkscreen and hard life analogy. S :)
