Tamara de Lempicka art deco painter

i

wear your power lightly, child
what you see distressing you is density

it’s not your home, your source or style
wear your power lightly, child

like vapour pass through mayhem, wild,
unencumbered—nothing less is mastery!

wear your power lightly, child
what you see distressing you is density

ii

adore the angles of a perfect fit
enjoy the heathered slope, the wind-blessed sea

the best do what they do for fun of it
enjoy the heathered slope, the wind-blessed sea

trace avenues of gold and chocolate
only you can shape your destiny

adore the angles of a perfect fit
enjoy the heathered slope, the wind-blessed sea

iii

when the silence comes to call
make room for him, your dearest friend

push come to shove can only fall
when the silence comes to call

reminding you the great enthrall
is what creates and knows no end

when the silence comes to call
make room for him, your dearest friend

The painting is by Polish Art Deco artist Tamara de Lempicka (1898-1980).
What a life she lived! It’s worth checking out her bio.
