Quatrain XXXII ~ Watercolour and gouache on Arches cold pressed

There was a Door to which I found no KEY:
There was a Veil past which I could not see:
Some little Talk awhile of ME and THEE
There seem’d–and then no more of THEE and ME.

‘Throwback Thursday’ to this illustration for Quatrain XXXII of Rubaiyát of Omar Khayyám, published by The Folio Society, 2009. This piece borrows directly from Rene Bull’s illustration to the same quatrain from 1913.
