And Death Shall Have No Dominion

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;

Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.....

From the poem by Dylan Thomas

Painting -
Why Seek Ye the Living Among the Dead
by Howard Pyle

A Most Happy Easter to Everyone!!
From Both of Us!

  21. A very Happy Easter to you all :)
    I think that poem was the inspiration for the painting, 'Resurection' by Stanley Spencer. He was a great favourite of mine for a long time, and lived only an hours drive from my house. Maybe I should go on my own pilgrimage :)

  28. During Easter weekend (no, I did not play for the Easter bunny:) ) I was in the painting zone, and finally finished some things - sorry, but I hope you had a great Easter. I like this painting very much - an angel-like being, but not sentimental for a change!!
