The Secret Tear
When you pulled the red scarf from your face, I became aware
of the silken pile of mourning and also of the tear which you did hide.
On opera stages and in paintings many a tear flows in a pose. It is not aimed at pity, but more to bitter-sweet delight. Of this kind is the picture's tear. If it moves also you to a tear, beloved reader, please let me know. In the online-gallery the painting it is for sale, directly from the artist, attractive also as good canvas print.
