Our National Gallery - Poem by Jason Palmer

In Trafalgar
She does anchor
A mighty treasure ship, she

Great halls do keep
Treasure for thee

Too many to mention
Yet Leonardo beckons
A call K Clark
Did hear

In times gone past
A single treasure did he
Risk all, as did we

Jewel upon Jewel
Hard to know
Where to start

Her guides and talks
Do give thee
Gems to know

By the flicker of
Our short lives
They hold a candle
To see

    K Clark wrote a book about leonardo, and was director of the national gallery during WW2, he decided they could risk one painting, on show, at the national, each week or month, and held musical recitals there etc. etc.

    I often go to the talks at the national, it is a good way to find out about random paintings and random artists.
