Love Is Enough? - art exhibition at The Mill


Hello friends!
There is another exhibition at The Mill - community centre in Walthamstow, that is organised by Friends of the William Morris Gallery. Exhibition is based on the Morris's poem "Love is Enough?"


7. February ~ 3.March


Piece of art that I created for the exhibition (apologies for not great photo): 

LOVE is enough: though the World be a-waning,
And the woods have no voice but the voice of complaining,
Though the sky be too dark for dim eyes to discover
The gold-cups and daisies fair blooming thereunder,
Though the hills be held shadows, and the sea a dark wander,
And this day draw a veil over all deeds pass'd over,
Yet their hands shall not tremble, their feet shall not falter;
The void shall not weary, the fear shall not alter
These lips and these ayes of the loved and the lover.

Morris wrote ~Love is Enough~ in 1872, a play that draws inspiration from a ancient Welsh saga, The Mabinogion. It tells of a king who gives up his kingdom for the love of a commoner and was described at the time as a "fantastic little book, chiefly lyrical". Love is Enough is better known as a poem from the book.
