On a Painting by Bosch

On a Painting by Bosch

Félicien Rops and Norman Lindsay
put naked women on the Cross;
Norman from Antipodean whimsy,
Félicien with European blasphemy
to mock the tempted Anthony

… but Hieronymus Bosch showed
Saint Julia on her cross clothed
and set a golden tiara on her head,
as the crown of martyrdom;
and pictured Saint Anthony
by her side, as her master had
Saint John.

I had to share this

There is more wisdom in this little cartoon or meme, which seems to be popping up at the moment, than in half a dozen advice books for women.

The carp

The carp sulk among
the water lily leaves
the shape of artists’
palettes, in the Monet 
pool, near the pastel 
bridge; retiring, already
daubed by Nature;
wary of Japonisme.
