Recordando Jean Béraud e Emily Dickinson!

Gostei deste quadro de Jean Béraud por causa da cor e da luminosidade que o pintor empregou.

We don't cry—Tim and I

We don't cry—Tim and I,
We are far too grand—
But we bolt the door tight
To prevent a friend—
x
Then we hide our brave face
Deep in our hand—
Not to cry—Tim and I—
We are far too grand—
x
Nor to dream—he and me—
Do we condescend—
We just shut our brown eye
To see to the end—
x
Tim—see Cottages—
But, Oh, so high!
Then—we shake—Tim and I—
And lest I—cry—
x
Tim—reads a little Hymn—
And we both pray—
Please, Sir, I and Tim—
Always lost the way!
x
We must die—by and by—
Clergymen say—
Tim—shall—if I—do—
I—too—if he—
x
How shall we arrange it—
Tim—was—so—shy?
Take us simultaneous—Lord—
I—"Tim"—and Me!
