Are you a mere portrait painted on canvas?

Are you a mere portrait painted on canvas?

Oh! Those distant nebulae

-They huddle together in the vault of heaven,

Those who carry light through the dark all the time

-Planets, stars and the sun.

Aren’t you real like them?

Oh Portrait! Are you just a portrait?

You are not in front of my eyes

But my eyes are fixed on you, so today-

You are in the luxuriance of green;

You are in the light shade of blue.

My universe has found in you -my heart’s symphony

I don’t know and nobody knows that

I am singing in your tune

You are the poetry in the heart of a poet--

Not a portrait, not a mere portrait, not just a portrait.
