Winter day, Florianópolis

Winter Day, Florianópolis , oil on card, 8.2 x 12.5 cm  SOLD


Gift


A day so happy.
Fog lifted early. I worked in the garden.
Hummingbirds were stopping over honeysuckle flowers.
There was no thing on earth I wanted to possess.
I knew no one worth my envying him.
Whatever evil I had suffered, I forgot.
To think that once I was the same man did not embarrass me.
In my body I felt no pain.
When straightening up, I saw the blue sea and sails.



Czesław Miłosz, Berkeley, 1971
