Martin Johnson Heade's Black-Breasted Plovercrest (1864-1865)
I am working on a villanelle about this painting; another poem in my Heade series. Yes, it actually does rhyme, something I rarely try.
I will probably post a draft of this one, as soon as I've done a bit of polishing.
In other news, the reported norovirus cases at Hope College are up over 400, and the college is going to stay closed at least until Wednesday morning.
