I enjoy writing poems about images in art. This poem was inspired by Untitled (Northern Renaissance angel with lute), by Joseph Cornell….

My great grandmother’s line contains rather high and lofty folks all the way back to the fourth century in Ireland/Scotland/Dalriada. Fascinating history. “Too much history for one heart to carry.”
