Weekly painting Week 61- Love and Loss a Seascape with the Morning Star

Morning Star and the Sea

Morning Star- Oil on Canvas 10 x 20″

Sometimes the loss is great..so is the love. Look in the top left, you will see the Morning Star. There you are. (click on the image for a bigger view)

With that, I give you the words of Tolkien, in a beautiful poem:

Day is ended, dim my eyes, 

but journey long before me lies.

Farewell, friends! I hear the call.
The ship’s beside the stony wall.
Foam is white and waves are grey;
beyond the sunset leads my way.
Foam is salt, the wind is free;
I hear the rising of the Sea.

Farewell, friends! The sails are set,
the wind is east, the moorings fret.
Shadows long before me lie,
beneath the ever-bending sky,
but islands lie behind the Sun
that I shall raise ere all is done;
lands there are to west of West,
where night is quiet and sleep is rest.

Guided by the Lonely Star,
beyond the utmost harbour-bar,
I’ll find the heavens fair and free,
and beaches of the Starlit Sea.
Ship, my ship! I seek the West,
and fields and mountains ever blest.
Farewell to Middle-earth at last.
I see the Star above my mast!
