Sunday Afternoon at the Island of La Grande Jatte

Sunday Afternoon at the Island of La Grande Jatte

 

All is well,
All is great,
Everything is swell,
At the Island of La Grand Jatte.
Ladies and men in their Sunday best,
Pride and glory
Swelling in their chest.

It’s like a beautiful story
That always ends well,
Like a wonderful dream,
That always ends swell.
The ocean is flowing like a stream,
The crest of the wave toppling down on me.

Everything is great,
Everything is fine,
At the Island of La Grande Jatte.

COMMENTS:
The picture at the top inspired the poem. It is titled The Island of La Grande Jatte, by Georges Seurat. It features his famous pointalism, which is making a picture out of only small dots.
