The Pond at Benten Shrine in Shiba

And nearer to the river's trembling edge There grew broad flag-flowers, purple, prankt with white; And starry river buds among the sedge; And floating water-lilies, broad and bright.
~Percy Bysshe Shelley

A woodblock print from 1929 for Art Thursday:

Gorgeous woodblock print. Really draws you into the scene. We're taking in the view of the water lilies like the characters on the bridge are doing.
