THE WHITE ROAD

Oil on canvas, 2004.

198 x 244 cm.

 

Who is the third who walks always beside you?

When I count, there are only you and I together

But when I look ahead up the white road

There is always another one walking beside you

Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded

I do not know whether a man or a woman

- But who is that on the other side of you?

 

The Wasteland: What The Thunder Said  (1922)

T. S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)
