34: Der Watzmann

Der Watzmann

I only ever once saw
one other painting which
by sheer technique
would move me
as much as this;

I didn’t come to see it
but there it was;
and admiration caught me
while off guard;

These fluent handled brushstrokes,
all the tones of brown and green,
the highlights, shadows; they evoke
a simple beauty like I’d never seen.
