Yes, it is spare, Lavender, but it works for me. I'd love to see it in color. The colors described remind me of others of his early watercolors, very imaginative, with simplified shapes in compositions that flow, using bold but attractive colors. I'm thinking of the 1915 "Shores of Faerie" ( https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mechtild/7380611/80100/80100_800.jpg ), 1914's 'Water, Wind and Sand' ( https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mechtild/7380611/104239/104239_800.jpg ), or 'Tanaqui' from 1915 ( https://ic.pics.livejournal.com/mechtild/7380611/104652/104652_800.jpg ).

I love what you say about how the poem engages all the reader's senses: "music tangling in Light's clothes--bringing a sense of touch into the the dance of sight and sound. The scent of parchment and bindings mingling with sea salt..."
