Wiseman Shares Winter Piece with Poem

Jan 10, 2022

The snow lays crisp and clear in the cold winter environment portrayed in Kimberley Wiseman’s latest piece. Further up the path, a person and a dog can be seen strolling under the light of the park lamps. A poem is shared by Kimberley with this wonderful painting, and it’s by none other than (arguably) the most influential artist of the Harlem Renaissance, Langston Hughes:

“Still Here”
I have been scared and battered.

My hopes the wind done scattered.

Snow has friz me,

Sun has baked me,
Looks like between ’em they done

Tried to make me
Stop laughin’, stop lovin’, stop livin’–

But I don’t care!

I’m still here!
