Title Basket of Chips, page 159
Description A New Life oh, tull is my husband Walking over bills dnd valleys, and along the seu. His blzle eyes gaze into the bhe day Looking fey patterns of sunlight and shadow In sparkling rivers tind jewel-steeped ponds, In the infinite moods of the sky, To pour on canvds. He gathers the scent from tbe joyfd dir To mix with his @nts, Then draws the dazzling glow In sensaoas solidity. And in between the pigment I know my beloved. His styhs etches Deep into tbe steel plate, But no nigbtmdre there, no chaos. Long tazining steadies bis bdnd In expressive line. He sets d curve of color to vibrate Upon his palette, then pdints the fddidnt &. Under his bnnb, tbe shadows bloom Bhe-purple, Lzlminous even there. His blzle look ut me Refiect the beauty Of tbe jewel-steeped pond. His bdnds aYe tender As they gather perfames To offer me. Oh, wbdt cm be sweeter than dfter a full d&y, Walking beside my btisbdnd, tbe fmgrmce of evelzing Mingling and rising arozlnd us like the tides of the seti, Proving a dream reality? My sougs drop one by one Into tbe peace of this tree-mirrored lake Until dt last my so241 stills in ecstdsy. Tbe lines of tbe willow, enraptured, drift . , . Ione Godwin Hdrwood l/9
