Excerpt from Landscape Painting and Modern Dutch Artists

"Ars Longa, Vita Brevis"

The years are fading fast,
But we will not complain,
While you and I outlast
The past,
And love and hope remain.

So let us just keep still,
While time flies far away,
And loiter on the hill,
At will,
Forever and a day.

Playing at life and art,
Wandering to and fro,
Forgetting we must part,
Dear Heart,
Some day, and all forego.

Though Art be long, yet we
Have little time to spend
Amid its witchery;
Ah me!
The years so quickly end.

Still when the leaves fall sere,
Foretelling wintry weather,
We'll travel on, nor fear,
My Dear,
If we but go together.

E. B. G.
