First Line: Deep music comes
Last Line: Hands have known.
Subject(s): Photography & Photographers; Portraits; Rachmaninoff, Sergey (1873-1943); Steichen, Edward (1879-1973)


Deep music comes
In waves unending
From this portrait
By the Rembrandt of the lenses.
The bright black notes
Of the two deep eyes
Leap to the forehead,
And upon the score-lines,
That time and character have drawn,
Play music, that the haloed
Hands have known.
