A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky


A Boat Beneath A Sunny Sky

A boat beneath a sunny sky,
Lingering onward dreamily
In an evening of July -
Children three that nestle near,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Pleased a simple tale to hear -

Long has paled that sunny sky:
Echoes fade and memories die:
Autumn frosts have slain July.

Still she haunts me, phantomwise,
Alice moving under skies
Never seen by waking eyes.
Children yet, the tale to hear,
Eager eye and willing ear,
Lovingly shall nestle near.

In a Wonderland they lie,
Dreaming as the days go by,
Dreaming as the summers die:
Ever drifting down the stream -
Lingering in the golden dream -
Life, what is it but a dream?

Recently I was commissioned by Venetia of VenetiaJewelry to make a vintage style photo themed around boats and fishing for her "other half" who is a fishing and boating nut. I spent a while working through various ideas and eventually came up with a few different pieces. In the end my personal favourite was this diptych called Riviera.
These pictures are now available for sale in my Etsy shop along with a couple of other boat themed pictures that I produced while working towards the commission.
