The Lark Ascending Poem Poems Poetry CurtisGraphics Design Studio

Out of Abyss emerges the matrix
Primordial egg of existence
Diaphanous womb of our universe
Permeated by luminous power of celestial origin

Tempest is released from its fetters
Instantaneous collisions of energy thunderclap
Pristine semina of duality take their stance
Origin of diversity begins

Mirror of endless contemplation crystallizes
As the chrysalis manifests itself
An entity of reflection,
Of spiritual longing takes form

Olamic metamorphosis impels cyclical inertia
Causation begins

Entrails of the nucleus expand and
Break apart releasing the monad
The lark ascends

An ecstatic paean issues forth
Venerating innocence with increasing charm
As resonance illumines Lydian Measures

The lark sojourns
Till elixirs of lengthening vigilance overflow
Then resumes its journey


Curt Doll

(After the Musical Composition
by Ralph Vaughan Williams)


The Small Version of The Lark Ascending Series

 

The Lark Ascending music by Ralph Vaughan Williams was composed in 1914 and revised in 1920. A musical composition for solo violin, The Lark Ascending is described as a pastoral piece depicting pre war England. However, taking into account the spiritual depth of his symphonic music, I personally perceive The Lark Ascending to evoke a deeper longing for the discovery of ones own inner being.

As a graduate of Fine Art from the York Academy of Arts in 1977, I have been a lover of fine music, art and literature all of my life. The Lark Ascending Poem was inspired by the sublime violin composition by Ralph Vaughan Williams. It is my intention to reveal the interconnectedness between the arts; music, poetry and visual art by incorporating visual images along with this poem. The imagery and the poem are best appreciated when viewed and read while listening to the music. Ballet is implied by the final line in the poem.


Each print is 42" in height and is offered at $1,171 a piece. These are Giclée limited editions of 175 printed on heavy 100% rag Sommerset paper. They are signed by the artist, (Curtis R Doll Jr), numbered and have the CurtisGraphics seal printed on them to distinguish them from pirated prints of inferior quality and they are accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The entire set sells for $9,368 unframed.
