    Le Moulin de la Galette

    Montmartre
    The harlot on the hill
    Her perfume of.
    garlic and Gaulloises
    drifting on the Sunday afternoon.
    ~
    On the Rue Laitiere
    A promenade of bustles
    Where under lace parasols
    working girls glances
    Survey the field.
    ~
    In the Moulin de la Galette
    The thin man in a hurry
    Eager at the canvass
    Licks brush on palette
    and gives Estelle her eyes.
    ~
    From a third story window
    Lissette leans on her elbows
    Smiles at the sunlight

    Sighs at the memory
    of yesterday’s lover.



    Inspired by Renior's Le Moulin de la Galette

    What beauty I'm finding in the zone today. I wasn't familiar with the painting - thank you for introducing it in such wonderful fashion.

      Thank you,
      Montmartre was always a favourite haunt of artists and still is as far as I know. It was also a place for other delights which I won’t go into. Renoir was of course an impressionist but also a portrait painter epically of women and children, ‘The Girl with Red Hair’ is another well known painting by him which I’ve also written a poem on.

      Again thank you for your much valued remarks.

      John.

        Hi there, this was a nice poem. I liked the references, which were new to me, and the clipped lines which worked well to set the mood. Thanks for sharing Cari!
