Fragments Of A Grecian Urn
Striking and original use
of perspective on this fragment--
the foreleg of a white cow,
and perhaps a garland of some sort.
A bush with large blossoms
fills the left side of this chip.
Another fragment features the wheel
of a cart or carriage (abduction marriage?).
It’s a celebratory event, certainly,
with so many sandaled feet in a procession.
If you join these two pieces, lovers maybe
because of the hands, but hard to determine
whether they’re male or female,
there being no garments and the skin tone is so similar.
Here’s such a small fragment,
that even under a microscope
the incised lines are barely evident
and the red tint almost
the shade of a drop of blood
Some text on one, “is truth…”
and “beauty [ ] all”
