Marble Halls

Pre-Raphaelite art is one of my favourite genres. How amazing to see this slide show on this totally appropriate musical video. As you can see, this is a musical sort of week. This lilt by Enya captivates me.


I dreamt I dwelt in marble halls
with vassals and serfs at my side,
and of all who assembled within those walls
that I was the hope and the pride.
I had riches all too great to count
and a high ancestral name.
But I also dreamt which pleased me most
that you loved me still the same,
that you loved me
you loved me still the same,
that you loved me
you loved me still the same.

I dreamt that suitors sought my hand,
that knights upon bended knee
and with vows no maiden's heart could withstand,
they pledged their faith to me.
And I dreamt that one of that noble host
came forth my hand to claim.
But I also dreamt which charmed me most
that you loved me still the same
that you loved me
you loved me still the same,
that you loved me
you loved me still the same.

The Professor's cousin has some of his prints on loan to this exhibit in London, England. How I wish I were there now.

    That music/art combination was the soothing touch I needed today. How beautiful!

  2. Such romantic art! That is such a beautiful yet tragic image of poor Ophelia, holding her flowers and herbs. Let's all gas up the jet and go to London! Thanks for sharing...
