I saw these geese flying north just after the spring equanox while I watched with other parents, waiting for my son to finish his soccer practise. I remember thinking how unselfconsciously beautiful my boy was. At that moment, when I heard the high honking, and, looking up, saw the birds lines from W.H. Auden lept into my mind:
"I'll love you til the ocean
Is folded and hung up to dry
And the seven stars go squawking
Like geese about the sky."
I decided there that that would make a good print.
The print was made from 3 blocks from which 11 impressions were taken.
