The Towering Green

When I go out into the countryside and see the sun and the green and everything flowering, I say to myself "Yes indeed, all that belongs to me!"
~Henri Rousseau

Just one today...

The Avenue in the Park at Saint Cloud
by Henri Rousseau

A Rousseau-inspired ekphrastic poem by me

A wonderful painting by Rousseau...I've always liked it. The perspective is lovely and I'm drawn to the tree on the far right for some reason; maybe it's the scar on the trunk or the fact that you can see the tree through the leaves?

And I enjoyed your ekphrastic poem very much; nice to see it again!

What a beautiful painting and I love the quote. May I place these in my gallery compliments of you?
