PRAYERafter Guillaume Apollinaire, Prière
When I was a small childMy mother dressed me in blue and whiteO Blessed VirginDo you still love meI knowI will love youTo my dying dayEven if it’s all overAnd I don’t believe in heaven or hellI don’t believe I don’t believe any moreThat seaman who was savedBecause he never once forgotTo say his Hail MaryWas like me was like me

I wish all my readers a merry Christmas, a happy Hannukah, and a peaceful and healthy New Year. I promise I will resume regular posts when circumstances allow. In the meantime I hope you enjoy these two prints by one of my favorite artists, Raoul Dufy, paired with a poem by his friend Guillaume Apollinaire.
