Poets & Painters Event

20 Birgie Ludlow (Eleanor Lawrie)

This lovely painting by Birgie Ludlow was produced as her interpretation of my poem.

Mist and Magic

Eleanor Lawrie

At the end of the meadow is a stand of trees

Tall and graceful, imposing with ease.

In mist and magic, they seem to sleep

But noble branches a watch do keep.

They beckon, they call, they sing and sigh:

Come closer, come hither, do not fly;

Here is a shelter, a haven sublime,

Enfolding, surrounding for all of time.

Stripped of leaves, an upward thrust

Joining the clouds, presenting a trust

That all is together, all is one

Harmony for Earth and Moon and Sun.

Majestic, imposing, magnificent limbs

Deliver a chorus of crooning hymns.

All who can hear, absorb the sweet sound:

Tranquillity, love all around.

Noble and steadfast, through ages they live

Never to take but eternal to give

Ethereal joy, deep, heaven-sent

Exudes perfect peace; all is content.

Our event, which took place April 7, 2016, had 18 participants. Nine each writers and painters. The complete show is dazzling! It’s a unique and wonderful way to bring two groups of creative people together.

    Mist and Magic – what a perfect pairing with Eleanor as author and Birgie as artist. Both evoke calming and peaceful emotions along with a natural landscape as its vessel. Simply stunning on both accounts. Thank you both for sharing your awesome talent.
