B&P’s Shadorma and Beyond: Robert Fagles


madness as


your art went

far beyond

what we would believe as beauty

as pleasure to see

Robert Fagles’ “The Starry Night” and Vincent’s painting, The Starry Night are the inspirations set for this week’s shadorma, though I lean more heavily on Vincent.

Starry, Starry Night by Don McLean

      Thanks, Bee. Vincent is my favourite painter, and the song so fitting. These are challenging prompts so I’m glad that you liked the poem.
