Ekphrastic April, Day 19: "Chez Moi"


"Chez Moi" (1887) by Harriet Backer [1845-1932].


my room full of sunlight

when I, too, am sunny
I close the door to play

and sing a dance hall ditty
before settling down to
more interminable practice

  1. Lovely imagination for those "secret lives" lived. It's nice to give a thought to those women so long ago. Have a nice week, Diane!

  2. Well you KNOW I'm a sucker for a good dance hall ditty! ;)
