Still life with basket of flowers by Jean-Baptiste Monnoyer, Flanders, 1690s (Courtery: Art Gallery of South Australia)

This has been a difficult year. I celebrated Valentine’s Day discreetly and failed to write a post on the subject of love. However, if one clicks on Posts on Love Celebrated, a page, not a post, one will find discussion on this subject.

At any rate, I am wishing you, belatedly, a Happy Valentine’s Day.

In Gilles Durant’s poem, the first song, a lover invites his Lady to enjoy the pleasures of love, as life is much too brief. Carpe diem.

Ma Belle, si ton âme… Gilles Durant de la Bergerie & and other love songs
