QUOTH THE RAVEN QUEST #46 POEtry - MIDWAY REMINDER


Hi there,
Here I am with my DT for the Midway reminder over at QUOTH THE RAVEN QUEST #46 - POEtry.
The idea is to illustrate one of the poems of EDGAR ALLAN POE and I have chosen to do............................................

 "TO THE RIVER"

Fair river ! In thy bright, clear flow
Of crystal, wandering water;
Thou art an emblem of the glow
Of beauty - the unhidden heart -
The playful maziness of art
In old Alberto's daughter;

But when within thy wave she looks -
Which glistens then, and trembles -
Why, then, the prettiest of brooks
Her worshipper resembles.
For in his heart, as in thy stream,
Her image deeply lies,
His heart which trembles at the beam
of her soul-searching eyes.
                                                 
                                                                                                                 1829


I have used my Freebie Raven backing paper and Annabel Lee 2, both available at IKEsART, and a POE image from 'But I Digress', set upon a b/w photo of a river. My Annabel Lee was coloured with Promarkers and then scanned back into the computer.This piece was then constructed digitally within PSE 9.

I hope you will come over and play along with us at QUOTH THE RAVEN.
The collection of POE's poems and works can be found HERE.

Thank you for dropping by.
