This week's Magpie Tales presents MAG225, a theme set by Tess Kincade.
Sweet Summer, 1912. John William Waterhouse
This lady's not as promiscuous as she appears
Even though she's laid unclad for 1 0 2 years
John William Waterhouse is clearly to blame
When he painted Sweet Summer; of worldwide fame.
Young John in his day was a bit of a lad:
He painted his ladies, all scantily clad.
Not realising such serious wardrobe malfunctions
Might lead to arrest and some court injunctions.
One wonders as she lay for that lengthy repose
She might to the sun become over exposed
In 1912 there was no such thing as sun lotion
And the artist thought only of love and emotion.
I don't think it fitting to comment much more
I'll leave that to others, who will come to the fore.
I wonder what next week's prompt will bring!
