Love Among the Ruins ~ Edward Burne-Jones
A young artistic rebel brotherhood, long ago
painted realistic, lush romantic scenes
Vivid colors evocative, see the paint flow,
detailed and precise, every line clean
Yet, their paintings appear fanciful,
while the impressionists portray the real.
Both aesthetic meals leave us sated, full
Interesting how art can make us feel.
Art, poetry, music, anything done with heart,
leaves us searching our soul, deep within.
It leads us to put the horse before the cart,
brings quiet to the world, calms the daily din.
