Lesser Ochre - Poem by Sadiqullah Khan

The lesser ochre, Othello!
Brave and the courageous,
Envy bitten, but who is Desdemona?
Player, recall or help me with memory,
Of the years ago, I ask the youth,
Nearby stands, she far away.
The play shall be read and read again,
Whence I read is my time’s spread,
Or a painter makes her call, in Homerian-
Fancy, décor, color, column and costume.

-On a painting of Desdemona by Gustave Mareau,1885.
