Among the Paintings of Chagall

I know Chagall and Rembrandt love me
It is my only boast
I love freedom in all its forms
And all skills toward the human purpose

We will find a way to our selves
The rabbi with another on his head
Is only self and soul
The drab cold brown earth
Will always be plodded on by angels
In the rainbow is the momentary image
Of the moving water of life

Look at the colors and the music
In the dreaming lover's face
See the creature of the field
Gaze back upon you
With the single eye of God

Marc Chagall, Lover's Face
