A Glimpse

Springtime - Pierre Auguste 

A glimpse through an interstice caught, 
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremark’d seated in a corner, 
Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand, 
A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and oath and smutty jest, 
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word. 

- Walt Whitman

  1. Hello Ruby,
    a big change here in your blog :-)
    A beautiful painting and a beautiful text.
    A text that also leads to thought.
    Greetings, Helma
