The Starry Night

.

.

The starry night the skies bestow

upon us earthlings here below

gives rise to ever wondrous gaze

and sights o’erwhelming to amaze

as in the painting by van Gogh,

.

that grand impressionistic show

in indigo of cosmic flow,

so disregarded in his days,

the Starry Night.

.

We yearn to fathom vast tableau

and yet ourselves have failed to know.

How fickle are the public’s ways.

When Vincent strove for word of praise

he saw no hint how famed would grow

the Starry Night.

Explanation: The painting Starry Night is one of the most famous icons of the night sky ever created. The scene was painted by Vincent van Gogh in southern France in 1889. The swirling style of Starry Night appears, to many, to make the night sky come alive. Although van Gogh frequently portrayed real settings in his paintings, art historians do not agree on precisely what stars and planets are being depicted in Starry Night. The style of Starry Night is post-impressionism, a popular painting style at the end of the nineteenth century. The original Starry Night painting hangs in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, New York, USA.
