Nymph #4

A glint of her hair or a flash of her shoulder —
That is the most I can boast to have seen,
Then all is lost as the shadows enfold her,
Forest glades making a screen of their green,
Could I cast off all the cares of tomorrow— Could I forget all the fret of today
Then, my heart free from the burdens I borrow,
Nature’s chaste spirit her face would display.

(The Wood Nymph by Ellis Parker Butler)

ps background is a pan of some woods I took last year.
I love this, FAV

I love the way you've done this and the poem you've quoted. It has the quality of a beautiful pencil drawing, soft tones and shading, a figure you glimpse in a dream.
