Elgar’s Hills

Day 20 and here is a poem about Edward Elgar’s inspiring hills for Napowrimo.

Around the corner
from Elgar’s house,
I see his favourite vista.
Malvern, distant:
where the skies rise
from the hills;
where he found inspiration.

  1. no wonder they inspired him….this looks just beautiful

  2. congrats with keeping up with nanowrimo, Polly. This one simple but lovely. k.

  3. Lovely Polly! Perhaps you find some inspiration there as well?

    Inspiration comes from many sources but it is easy to see why these hills would do so. Cézanne painted his beloved Mont Sainte-Victoire over sixty times.

    • For sure, Lea, I just love those hills – WH Auden, CS Lewis, Ursula Fanthorpe, the list goes on and on, so many writers and artists have adored them :)

  4. Beautiful picture and poem.

  5. Stunning – both the hills and the poem :)
