The Portrait Daughter


 Anatoly Kontsub (1949-  Belarus) - The Portrait Daughter.
1998. Oil.
Kontsub's website is HERE.



pretty wild flowers
and tall grasses
and friendly feathers

must the moment come
when I must leave
for civilised routines

where flowers are cultivated
and grasses are mown
and feathers preen

must the moment come
when I must pretend
to like
the masked ball
