What beautiful poems! After reading them I don't think I'll be able to look at the moon without thinking of Frodo.

I didn't know Carlsen's work, but the few paintings I've seen in the Wikipedia article are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing the poems and the paintings with us!:)

Carlsen is wonderful. He's not showy, very modest, but every canvas is full of revelations. I've come to love his work, not having known him until I began looking for poem illustrations a couple of years ago.

These were beautiful poems, weren't they? Thanks for stopping in, Bagma, and I hope you are well. :)

Dear Bagma......thank you so much! I can't help but think that Frodo would enjoy being remembered based on the gentle memory-nudge of the moon....

Mechtild chose such lovely companions for these poems......the almost brooding yet quiet feel of the first....and then the second, equally (or perhaps even more quiet) and yet somehow i get the feeling of peaceful victory, redemption. And that is certainly what the poem portrays.

thank you again, Bagma. And thank you, Mechtild, for pairing these so lovingly!
