Thoughts when viewing ‘Tannenwald’ 1902 by Gustav Klimt


Ramrod sentries of kaleidoscope colours and shade

guard a florid walk leading to fern and amber Glade,

past petals of white chalk.

Does One void free Will if you venture into the dark ?

Do you forever stay, if, once entranced by vibrant bark,

amongst the Pines you lay.

Or can the Curious be sated, keeping all at arms length,

it’s secret to learn, fighting against the drawing strength

of amber, teal and fern
