Artist's comments ...

    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.
