The Girl with the Pearl Earring

27 Mar

Vermeer witnessed your haunting glance,

And in oils he cast a shadow of your stance.

.

Your wide eyes dreamy with mysteries

Of this tortured, cracked painting in history.

Exotic corruption, immortal on canvas,

Masquerading as enticing enchantress.

 .

Suspicions forbidden from your duty,

Alluring lovers to your unnatural beauty.

What are you, of land fantastical?

“Het Meisje met de Parel.”
