Cezanne's Ports

In the foreground we see time and life
swept in a race
toward the left hand side of the picture
where shore meets shore.
 
But that meeting place
isn’t represented;
it doesn’t occur on the canvas.
 
For the other side of the bay
is Heaven and Eternity,
with a bleak white haze over its mountains.
 
And the immense water of L’Estaque is a go—between
for minute rowboats.
