Comment on this article

From the book:

This morning you lay veiled and absent.
I painted you a final time;
Camille, you fled
and took with you every hue.

What remains is as simple
as a broken bird,
as a clock run down.
What remains
are these dark and
flightless hours.

          –from Monet to His Wife While Winding the Sheets.
