A Happy Change

I had a lovely shift in the weather yesterday:

A grey sky is broken,
by a fresh wind.
The smell of brine, and dog rose.
A new poem begins,
one full of play and white horses.

The view of Lilleø and Hornsherred

I’ve had the profound joy to visit my family in Jyllinge for many years. I thought I recognised the landscape in the painting of H.A. Brendekilde and today I found the evidence on a culture site in the neighbouring municipality, Frederikssund.
Brendekilde lived in Jyllinge for several years until his death in March 1942. The painting shows the lovely view over the fjord to Lilleø and Hornsherred.

By the Danish painter, H. A. Brendekilde, 1857–1942.
