Peter Clarke (1929 - )
Brit-Helene (in Asker)

mixed media
50 x 35cm

Always dressed neatly
but in some plain, plain, garment
black or gray
as if belonging, in fact,
to a sect
I didn't expect
that her apartment,
instead of being some sombre shade,
would be so pleasant,
warm & colourful,
the happy way
a laugh bursts through
after a period of mourning.
