Pietro Aman decorative flourish Pierre-Auguste

What man could create such impressions as a young girl’s

idle character and not have had his weaknesses recognized?

I do not know any of the sort who have not watched

the good summer out in solitude, or sauntered heavy

along a dark water’s edge; I too would have sought

the love of such girls. And he is dead, the artist, anyway.

The girls of his terrace day are likewise gone, their faces once

so well-received; this is no matter. I see them also in my time.
