A Summer Night

WINSLOW HOMER: “Summer night” – 1890 – oil on canvas, 76.7- 102 cm. – Paris, Musée d’ Orsay

We look before and after,
.
.
And pine for what is not;
.
.
Our sincerest laughter
.
.
With some pain is fraught;
.
.
Our sweetest songs are those
.
.
that tell of saddest thought.
.

~Percy Bysshe Shelley, “Ode to a Sky Lark”
