Parting Gifts

by Naomi VanDoren

Flow down, cold rivulet, to the sea,
Thy tribute wave deliver:
No more by thee my steps shall be,
For ever and for ever.

Flow, softly flow, by lawn and lea,
A rivulet then a river:
Nowhere by thee my steps shall be
For ever and for ever.

But here will sigh thine alder tree
And here thine aspen shiver;
And here by thee will hum the bee,
For ever and for ever.

A thousand suns will stream on thee,
A thousand moons will quiver;
But not by thee my steps shall be,
For ever and for ever

– “A Farewell” by Alfred Lord Tennyson

Naomi is a whimsical artist, author, and a wanderer at heart. Vibrant, natural themes of the outdoors and a love of travel and exploration saturate her work. Having grown up in the Spice Island of Indonesia, she pulls from the rich cultures of South East Asian and Oceana as further inspiration for her work.

Her art revolves around imaginative worlds and reflects a deep desire to explore not only the world she lives in but imaginative ones as well.

Naomi is currently based in Northern California.
