A painting and a poem ....

Words of wisdom ......


I asked a gypsy pal
To imitate an old image
And speak old wisdom.
She drew in her chin,
Made her neck and head
The top piece of a Nile obelisk and said:

  Snatch off the gag from thy mouth, child,
And be free to keep silence.
Tell no man anything for no man listens,
Yet hold thy lips ready to speak.

~ Carl Sandburg 

The painting called "Gypsy Woman" is by the Russian artist Nikolai Yaroshenko. I found it by google search and wished to share... Isn't it lovely ?
