Monet at the Louvre

Monet at the Louvre

by Lori Lamothe

While others set their easels before Old Masters

and copied the fall of shadow across fruit

you moved yours to a window

to sketch riffs on clouds,

the swish of women's skirts,

a line of carriages, restless horses.

Even at 17, you never tired of the way the light

ebbed before surging back onto the canvas

again and again - as if anyone at all

could catch the simple genius of the sun.
