A TRIBUTE TO IDA LUPINO     CENTENNIAL

The Black and White Face

 

 Held by a fascination,
I first looked when I was very young

a child, wanting to be held up

to see over the top

it was then that I saw a face with eyes 

set in a solitary stare, alone

in a corner of an empty room

the eyes looked at me with a modern love 

and from that moment

I learned that blue is a character

a fixed form on a spiral wheel 

as it should be

part of daily reality , and caring not

who I was or where I came

but it mattered so little 

the face of stark beauty, I loved 

a face, not touched or held

but caressed with purest light , and wrapped

in darkest shadow, as it will always be

held by a fascination,

of what lives between the minutes

an intangible face, loved as only it can be

forever seen

in the camera eye view 

                   

             with love and respect, for Ida Lupino   1918-2018
