“This beautiful painting inspired my poem:”

Le Miroir de l’Amour
by Michael H. Hanson

I wonder if you think of me
when standing on your distant shore
cloaked in Aeolian finery
as lonely as I am heartsore.

I ponder if you greet the night
as I despair the setting moon
gazing upon sparkling twilight
and if my absence makes you swoon.

I fonder than all other men
who offer shallow reverence
send my ardour and acumen
with sweet, undying eloquence.

As heaven mirrored ‘pon the sea
this kiss, luminous, reflects me.
