Treasure Island

Longhi


Some enjoy a Goya
They could stare one down all day
Some find Rembrandt transcendent
Some put stock in Klee

Or happily ogle Turners
(though I find him a little vague)
Or one of a dozen 'Van-ders'
In the Kunst Halls of the Hague.

Some find Friedrich fetching
Or tilt for Tiepolo
Others still more bi-ching
find Caravaggio.

Some see nothing to pardon
In many of Chardin's things
And a trip to Monet's garden
Lends many viewers wings.

Some claim Bosch is best
Or Breughel, be it young or old
Many for Klimmt will stimmt
While others find him cold.

But I really like Longhi
And I more or less confess
I really do like Longhi
For me, Longhi's best.

Maybe he's not the greatest
Painter, of all times
But I really, really like him
Longhi rings my chimes.

Maybe you cream for El Greco
Or poor, insane Van Gogh
Or one of those French guys, maybe,
From the oh, so Rococo.

Or maybe a fete gallante
From a palette of Watteau
Or maybe it's Durer you prefer
Or some such English fellow.

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
