This is a painting done of a brook I keep returning to on my walks through the Botanical Graden in Gothenburg. The light was strong, the vegetation was lush with strong colors of fresh green, the sky was mirrored in the water and echoed by the banks full of bluebells. Such blissful peace!
I’m sure that Helen Hay Whitney (1875-1944) experienced such bliss when writing her poem My Brook:
Earth holds no sweeter secret anywhere
Than this my brook, that lisps along the green
Of mossy channels, where slim birch trees lean
Like tall pale ladies, whose delicious hair,
Lures and invites the kiss of wanton air.
The smooth soft grasses, delicate between
The rougher stalks, by waifs alone are seen,
Shy things that live in sweet seclusion there.
And is it still the same, and do the eyes
Of every silver ripple meet the trees
That bend above like guarding emerald skies?
I turn, who read the city’s beggared book,
And hear across the moan of many seas
The whisper and the laughter of my brook.
