From Poem to Painting to Poem
(La Belle Dame Sans Merci)







Following itís nightly habit
my mind is stirring questions,
of the oddest sort of mix.
The very image of your favourite
painting of all time (your words)
came to me and asked,
Why?

I wondered if you knew itís
inspiration, and bet myself you did.
After all, isnít Keatsí lyrical poem more
famous than Sir Frankís canvassed oil?
Do you see the harmony
between  it and us?
I, a would be knight
upward gazing at you
a lady of beauty with wild eyes
and hair long and fragrant
pedestaled upon  my fairytale stallion.

You leaned over my face,
a single bloom falling
from garlanded hair
and sang your song.
I saw nothing else.
We kissed then we slept,
and I awoke unarmored to
find you were gone.
I was left on this hillside alone,
enslaved and waiting to hear
just one bird sing.

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.
byron

awesome imagery here Jamie...and emote...
very very cool write ...love the analogies to the painting and poetry....and your "classic style tradgic ending" rang true of that theme.
very well done poet sir...good to see you posting again.

I love the picture, I love the poem. Your poem is absolutely beautiful, and took me into the emotions of the knight. Gorgeous, gorgeous

Very true J, very true - true to the painting, and true to how it was.

Hugs my dear.

Love you always
