Sir Edwin Henry Landseer - Monarch of the Glen, Franz Schubert - Arpeggione Sonata, William Wordsworth - Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802

This painting reminds me a little of the first painting I featured by Sir Edwin Henry Landseer.  I love the majesty of this buck and the grand scenery behind him.

I enjoyed the flute last week so much - here is more of Franz Schubert's work featuring flute, played by James Galway:Arpeggione Sonata 1st Movement
and Arpeggione Sonata Movement 2 & 3

Composed Upon Westminster Bridge, September 3, 1802

by William Wordsworth

Earth has not anything to show more fair:
Dull would he be of soul who could pass by
A sight so touching in its majesty:
This City now doth, like a garment, wear
The beauty of the morning; silent, bare,
Ships, towers, domes, theatres, and temples lie
Open unto the fields, and to the sky;
All bright and glittering in the smokeless air.
Never did sun more beautifully steep
In his first splendour, valley, rock, or hill;
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so deep!
The river glideth at his own sweet will:
Dear God! the very houses seem asleep;
And all that mighty heart is lying still!
