The Milkmaid

Centuries have past
Lives have changed
But the strokes you made
Still strike a chord
Unknowing we stare
Try to understand
What she is thinking
As she does her chores
So different from us
And so the same
We look with wonder
At the world that was hers
And yours…

Inspired by the painting ‘The Milkmaid’ by Johannes Vermeer (ca 1658)
