The Last Chrysanthemum - Poem by Thomas Hardy

Why should this flower delay so long 
   To show its tremulous plumes? 
Now is the time of plaintive robin-song, 
   When flowers are in their tombs. 

Through the slow summer, when the sun 
   Called to each frond and whorl 
That all he could for flowers was being done, 
   Why did it not uncurl? 

It must have felt that fervid call 
   Although it took no heed, 
Waking but now, when leaves like corpses fall, 
   And saps all retrocede. 

Too late its beauty, lonely thing, 
   The season's shine is spent, 
Nothing remains for it but shivering 
   In tempests turbulent. 

Had it a reason for delay, 
   Dreaming in witlessness 
That for a bloom so delicately gay 
   Winter would stay its stress? 

- I talk as if the thing were born 
   With sense to work its mind; 
Yet it is but one mask of many worn 
   By the Great Face behind.

This artwork can be painted to order as a 'commission' for you.

These are artworks that I create for you based on the original design shown on the listing. I hand paint the work in the same texture style and using the same colour palette. It will have the essence of the image shown with some characteristics of its own and be an original in its own right. The advantage of a created to order artwork is that if any colour or size changes are required, we can discuss further. Just contact me for more information. After creating your artwork in about 2-3 weeks, I will send you a photograph to your email address for your approval before shipping.

If you have any questions about the created to order process, please get in touch.
