poetry foreshadows Romanticism

Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism in a Major Way

Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism in a Major Way. By encouraging poetic expression, you enable Romanticism.  What qualities are then enhanced with Romanticism?:

  • Love.
  • Chivalry.
  • Courtesy.

Romanticism in the fine arts is feeling oriented: That is, feelings on a grand scale.   German painter and author  Caspar David Friedrich   expresses it this way: The artist’s feeling is his law”.[10]  Our featured picture was painted by the same  C.P. Friedrich.

Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism for Me

The featured painting parallels an inspiration I was given about fog. A spirit on Oquaga Lake dictated her poetry to me. I was the piano player for many years at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. This employment covered some 15 summer seasons. The poetry  book is called The Oquaga Spirit Speaks. I have memorized every poem. At sometime in the future, I will do recitations. The Catskills Mountains in New York have inspired many writers. Among them we find Washington Irving. Below is an internal link.

Oquaga Lake was once inhabited by American Indians. The tribe was the Lennie Lenape. Women ran the tribe. I believe the spirit of the lake is an American Indian female. Fingers of Fog a sample of the poetry she related to me.

Poetry Foreshadows Romanticism. On Oquaga Lake a spirit loves poetry!

Fingers of Fog

Fingers of fog moving quickly
Gliding across the lake.
Almost at jogging speed
Leaving no apparent wake.

Why are they scampering about
At this early morning time?
Thousand of fingers in motions
Moving gracefully with rhyme.

Perhaps each one is a spirit
Released from the depths of the spring:
Enjoying an hour of freedom
Almost ready to take wing.

This spring fed lake is enchanted,
As such water bodies are.
I actually saw its essence-
While viewing the Morning Star.

 

 

 

Sacred Engineers Philosophy- what I learned of antiquity on this lake

Sacred Engineers Philosophy was written on Oquaga Lake

Sacred Engineers Philosophy was written Oquaga Lake. It is located in New York’s Catskill Mountains.  Many people authored books with the background of mountains in New York. Washington Irving was among them. He wrote The Legend of Sleepy HollowWashington Irving (April 3, 1783 – November 28, 1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. Irving is best known for his short stories “Rip Van Winkle” (1819). He also wrote “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” (1820).  Both of  appear in his collection, The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.

The Catskill Mountains of New York  inspired me. They also gave me almost two decades of paychecks. This was as a piano player at Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. New York’s mountains talk to everyone who will listen. A wood carved sign at the hotel initiated my journey.  The sign was positioned over the lobby entrance at Scott’s Hotel. It read: Love is Spoken Here. My journey has so far lasted about 25 years. Several books including, The Oquaga Spirit Speaks, were written by me at this location. It is available thru DSOworks. At any rate, here’s the story:

Sacred Engineers Philosophy Introduction

My life was sent in an unexpected direction in the summer of 1994. The location was in New York’s Catskill Mountains. The resort was Scott’s Oquaga Lake House. I was “the house piano player.” Isn’t this slightly reminiscent of Scott Joplin’s type employment? But, it is not that kind of house. Rather, I accompanied various shows that came to the resort. Also, my wife and I did our own show. Lots of Broadway, of course.

Future Telling as per the Oquaga Spirit – DSO Works

I experienced sudden enlightenment at the resort. It happened in a flash.  In the spirit of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow a voice told me: “Look at the 3 x 3 number square more closely.” Suddenly, the dividing bars disappeared. I began reading the numbers in polarities. The polarities  were also in groupings of two and three opposing numbers. For example 49 + 61 = 110. Or 492 + 618 = 1110.   I then found the numbers behind the measurements of countless ancient structures. Most prominent was the Great Pyramid. See if you can find the number 440 in this manner. Each side of the of Great Pyramid is 440 cubits. I wrote the Sacred Engineers Philosophy as a result. Some countries still tune their musical  instruments  to A 440. If you can’t find it, look up posts on the Great Pyramid on DSOworks.com. You can find the answer.
