"Moon, moonwaxing and yellow.The girl with the pretty faceis wearing a black dressout picking raindrops.The wind, lover of beauty,grabs her round the waist.Four riders pass byon Arabian ponies,with blue pants and green jacketsand big, dark eyes.'Come to Boston, sweetheart'The girl won't listen to them.Three young sailors pass,slender in the waist, smilingwith jackets the color of nightand pants of deep snowfalls.'Come to New York City, sweetheart.'The girl won't listen to them.When the afternoon began turningashen, with scattered hues of light,a young man strolled by, wearingroses and myrtle of the hillsidechewing on basil leaves.'Come home with me, sweetheart.'And the girl won't listen to him.The girl with the pretty facewearing a black dresskeeps on picking raindropswith the cool arm of the windwrapped around her waist.Moon, moonWaxing and green"Liberatore SuffolettaI love her black dress, so I had to post the entirety of the poem I exerpted for FB.
Beautiful pictures! i like the contrast of the red&black... it creates an mysterious atmospherehave a good week
I love the poem, John, it's perfect.
So beautiful, really!!!The red and Q's black dress...She is becoming to be a big girl now. Look at her face and her gesture:)
Frankly, Maia, when I read the poem I immediately thought of your artwork, and what a wonderful illustration you could make from the images in the verse.
Q has such a special style, any outfit she wears, feels so Q and unique.I often what kind of stylish young lady she will look like once she grows up.
she is simply: divine.
Wow, I love how Q is aware of her dress flowing around her and she just spins and plays with it. Oh she looks so carefree!
I used to love playing with paper dolls when I was little. It was so easy to make clothes for them myself. I believe it was one of my favourite pastimes.
That dress is stunning. So dramatic and beautiful. Q completes the look with her inimitable persona.
she is so cute in her lovely black dress!
