Whistler's Wave

Nature images by James MacNeill Whistler.

Blue and Silvar: Blue Wave, Biarritz

Above and below: Peacock images from a room Whistler designed.

Peacocks sweep the fairies' rooms;
They use their folded tails for brooms;
But fairy dust is brighter far
Than any mortal colours are;
And all about their tails it clings
In strange designs of rounds and rings;
And that is why they strut about
And proudly spread their feathers out.
--Rose Fyleman
