the first one and the last one by nami64 the first one and the last one by nami64

They kissed there under an old oak-tree which probably saw the first virginian colonists to set foot on this ground. Not in a room full of expensive paintings and books, or between two doors covered by gold and ebony, or on the front step of a pretentious building. No. It just happened there under an oak-tree. And so he kissed her. Or she kissed him. Whatever… It was natural and logical and agreeable and evident.

Men are usually the first to go. She shouldn't be the one lying on a deathbed, not at 33 years of age. Christ's age. Maybe he could call for this reputed doctor in New York or this new medecine coming from Europe. Anything... He asked her what he could do. She said ''Kiss me. One last time.'' and so he kissed her. There was a salty taste on his lips.

I feel like the poem "I Carry You Heart With Me" by E.E. Cummings perfectly encapsulates these two...



i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

ugh ... i know this poem and yes! this is for them
i know another poem, sadder, with the POV of Martha:

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circling flight.
I am the soft starlight at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

I have never heard that one, so beautiful. But not sad at all! Well, I suppose a little :( but a very uplifting message from the dead to the living.

You are so welcome. It was completely inspired by your lovely work. Sadly, Thomas and Martha do not usually get so much attention, but I appreciate your deep interest and passion for them. I can tell from your comments that you studied them in-depth, and I'm sure your artwork and passion are helping to give them a little more exposure than they would have gotten otherwise.

Years ago, when I was in high school, I had a project to write/illustrate children's books about the first five First Ladies. For research on Martha, I read My Thomas. Did you read that for your studies? I don't remember much now, but I bring it up just to say that maybe I am a tiny bit like you in that I have more exposure to them than the average person? When I saw your pictures, the deep love and grief that Thomas felt and all her miscarriages came rushing back and I was very moved by your drawings. I hope to see more coming!

you are not going to believe it but i am reading 'My Thomas' currently :)
i started it this weekend and i really enjoy it for the moment.

and yes you're right, this couple does not get so much attention in comparaison of the other that came after in Thomas's life. it is understandable, people prefers scandals :] but it's sad to ignore Martha, because i do believe that he never fully recovered from her death.

Oh god, real life American historical figures drawn in your style.

My heart just cried.

This is amazing! If only people could be more open to the presidents and their wives. ^_^ I would LOVE to see a Martha and Washington picture.

I love your portrayal of them. I haven't read up much about Jefferson or any of the political figures back then, but didn't he have some slave women on the side? Out of curiosity. I know I've heard something about that or something similar on documentaries...
Reply
:iconnami64:
nami64 Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2012
one slave actually: Sally Hemmings. even if there are no 'proofs', it's pretty clear that they have an affaire and even kids together. it was, in my opinion, abusive relationship at first and after, maybe, well at least I hope, there was affection and even care between them. But definitely, it wasn't Love. Because, as he said it himself, his heart suffered too much to love again (a.k.a the lose of his wife)
so yes, you are right. and Martha was the only woman he ever really loved :)
