A Spot on the Stream
To Millais,1852, threatened for trespassing:
Here; where vivid underwater weed forms huge spearheads pointing downstream, as the earth-brown flow around them laps through stones, above the place lit in brief spells through leaves, the place where a touch of white willow sways on the current. On the far bank purple loosestrife loops below twigs. A trunk lies close beside.On the near bank nettles.
You could have painted her here.
