The Garden of the Langfords-Homage to A Flight of Doves-Pen and ink on paper 1996 35.2cm x 26.5cm 691

Medium:Pen and ink on paper

A Flight of Doves

 

Do not speak of fading

This beautiful dancing dream

Only the sound of laughter

Light steps in the stream

 
A postcard ship on a printed sea

Her sailor returned to a china tea

Fingered ringlets spiraled in her hair

Steaming horses pair by pair

 
Do you see her at the window

Do you see her standing there

Seeking curtained glimpses

Of the Ludlow Fair

 
Do not speak of fading

This beautiful dancing dream

Only the sound of laughter

Light steps in the stream

 
Behind a lofty window

She lay crying in the hay

For the coachman's pleasure

Morning blossomed into day

 
The garden of the Langfords

Held secrets from the town

Picked light upon the biscuit brick

Her crumpled linen gown

 
Beyond the wall the travelers drink

Mock the dancing bear

The garden twists of apple boughs

Hide kisses stolen there

 
Do you see her at the window

Do you see her standing there

Seeking curtained glimpses

Of the Ludlow Fair

 
Do not speak of fading

This beautiful dancing dream

Only the flight of circling doves

Make shadows on the green
