"Ivan Aivazovsky. For the 200th anniversary. Exhibition teaser."
You. My wave upon the ocean. Creature of caprice and wind. Where the resting oaring motion is what wondrous life you brim Laughing in the sunlight, flashing, heavens mirrored edifice or in frenzied tossing, thrashing, in a turbulent abyss. How you charm me with a gentle murmur of your love-filled sighs. Move me with your elemental raging, your prophetic cries. Be you by the riptide shaken. Be your aspect dark or bright. Yet keep safe what you have taken. Guard it in your azure night. To your gentle undulation votive offering I made, not a ring was my oblation, neither emerald nor jade. In that fateful moment carried on once by enchantment rare, in your depths not these I buried, but my heart that beats yet there.
