I haven’t done an Illustration Friday drawing in quite a long time, so I gave it a try again today. The word is “late,” and of course, time came to mind.
Specifically, I thought of two lines from the poem To His Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell, which I first read in high school and has stuck with me since. It is more about the fleeting nature of time than being late, but I think it’s an amazingly poignant couplet of poetry, and a great poem:
“But at my back I always hear
Time’s winged chariot hurrying near”
And here’s my drawing for Illustration Friday:
“Late,” 5 x 7 inches, pen and ink
