A beautiful young woman sits in her kitchen with a glass of wine, waiting,
When You Are Old " by Irish poet W B Yeats.1865-1939
" When you are old and grey and full of sleep
And nodding by the fire, take down this book,
And slowly read, and dream of the soft look
Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep
How many loved your moments of glad grace,
And loved your beauty with love false or true,
But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
And bending down beside the glowing bars,
Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled
And paced upon the mountains overhead
And hid his face amid a crowd of stars."
I live in beautiful Ireland ..I am inspired by mythology,memories, dreams, whimsical flights of fancy and by nature's beauty - with all it's related moods, My work is varied, sometimes abstract, often surreal. As well as painting and exhibiting, I run art weekends & creative workshops each summer at my studio; Bunbury Art Studio on the Carlow /Wicklow border in Ireland.
