From Days Past

Reflections, aspirations, expressions and desire

Words speak of life, passion, flame and fire
A gift of life now ever to be known
By the words of heart you have shown
And others may now be freed to reveal
What in their hearts they yet conceal
Many a story there is to be told
From days past a page to unfold.

Rose Marie Raccioppi

Woman Reading a Book, 1845, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, French, 1796-1875.
