On the occasion of a series of illustrations created around a poem by Emily Brontë, I add individual illustrations to my shop.
Emily Brontë was a British poet and novelist of the 1840s. She has written poems and a novel "Les Hauts de Hurlevent", which is considered a classic of English and world literature.
It was one of them that inspired me for the graphic creation of this calendar.
I took poem number 3 from the collection of his Cahiers de Poèmes. I divided it into 12 parts and revisited each of the words with the inspiration that this text gave me.
I wanted to give them a very special intention, light, free, soft and poetic.

Here is the fifth illustration of the series that corresponded to the month of May of the 2021 calendar.

What calm, what happiness! These are words
Who once would hardly have gone together
I loved the tumult of the swell -
The sky changing on windy days

More than serene skies and smooth seas
And the airs softened, solemn, consoling
Who in the forest did not sigh
Neither green spray shook tears

What calm, what happiness! now I feel
That a place of silence has much more charm
That the most joyful accents of jubilation
As pure as the transport was.

Come and sit on this stone in the sun
The light is winter on the flowerless moors -
But sit down - because we are all alone
And clear unfold from the sky the serene shores

I'd think I'd see with you in the withered grass
Spring garlands about to bloom
The violet may throw a shy lightning bolt
Young leaves gush out among ferns

Simple thought - during many nights
Snow will drape these distant mountains
Storms will cause more grim ruins
The winds will fight a bitter war

Before the lark can announce
New foliage woven with fresh flowers
And let the summer days once again
Their crown haloed with splendor

But my heart loves the December smile
As much as the golden ray of July
So let's sit down and look in the meantime
Blue ice curdling on the river -

Emily Brontë • December 7, 1838
