A Poem, Postekphrasis- Pawel Markiewicz

The postekphrastic poem
The elevenie.

Postekphrasis – according to Mr. Markiewicz
is a finding of a picture based on written text (at
Ekphrasis before the writing of poem).
The four-elvenie – consists of four stanzas.

About dryads

homely weather
the terpsichorean dryads
bibbing the silken resin

none prophesy
ash altar – mine
blackbird’s song at afflatus

charmed foliage
an enshrine – pines
possess the meekest dainties!

dine – victual
mojo on mulberry
having the blatant necklace

Difficult archaic words:
bibbing – drinking
banquetry – feast
victual – eat


or due to: dear auntie Barbara
