POETRY AND ART BY CAROLINE STREET
A poem by Caroline Street.
Day is at its restful end;
Sea, sky and hues blend.
Melting, merging into one,
A colour scape designed by, the sun.
Birds descending in happy frolic;
A silhouette of wings at play.
Dashing, splashing, some at rest,
Enjoying the final merriment of the day.
'Champagne Sunset' -
Captured on canvas;
What the eye to hand has perceived.
A creation of thick impasto
In lilac, red and tangerine.
Oil paints cut, edged, coaxed,
Into a scene, beautifully serene.
An everlasting moment in time
Is what the artist has achieved.
The viewer's eye coaxed again and again,
On an upward journey across
The gentle champagne sea;
Drawn into the melting horizon -
The last vestige of the dying amber sun.❤
