      Vincent (Starry Starry Night) - Don McLean

      Starry, starry night.
      Paint your palette blue and grey,
      Look out on a summer's day,
      With eyes that know the darkness in my soul.
      Shadows on the hills,
      Sketch the trees and the daffodils,
      Catch the breeze and the winter chills,
      In colors on the snowy linen land.

      Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
      How you suffered for your sanity,
      How you tried to set them free.
      They would not listen, they did not know how.
      Perhaps they'll listen now.

      Starry, starry night.
      Flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
      Swirling clouds in violet haze,
      Reflect in Vincent's eyes of china blue.
      Colors changing hue, morning field of amber grain,
      Weathered faces lined in pain,
      Are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.

      Now I understand what you tried to say to me,
      How you suffered for your sanity,
      How you tried to set them free.
      They would not listen, they did not know how.
      Perhaps they'll listen now.

      For they could not love you,
      But still your love was true.
      And when no hope was left in sight
      On that starry, starry night,
      You took your life, as lovers often do.
      But I could have told you, Vincent,
      This world was never meant for one
      As beautiful as you.

      Starry, starry night.
      Portraits hung in empty halls,
      Frameless head on nameless walls,
      With eyes that watch the world and can't forget.
      Like the strangers that you've met,
      The ragged men in the ragged clothes,
      The silver thorn of bloody rose,
      Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.

      Now I think I know what you tried to say to me,
      How you suffered for your sanity,
      How you tried to set them free.
      They would not listen, they're not listening still.
      Perhaps they never will...

First of all, thank you, Webmaster, for helping me to share this song with our alumni.

I don't know well Vincent Van Gogh's(1853-1890) paintings, even though I read his
biography many times, about his life and death, about his brotherly love for Theo,
4 years younger than Vincent.

When you listen Don McLean's song,"Vincent", it says all about him,
"how he suffered for his sanity, how he tried set them free".
Maybe, we see a glimpse of ourselves through his life.

Vincent passed away at age of 37, Theo followed several months after, at age of 33.
What a waste! They were too young. Alas!

"Starry Night" by Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890)

The Starry Night (Dutch: De sterrennacht, Français : La Nuit étoilée) is a painting by Dutch post-impressionist artist Vincent van Gogh. The painting depicts the view outside his sanitarium room window at night, although it was painted from memory during the day.
Since 1941 it has been in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
Reproduced often, the painting is widely hailed as his magnum opus.

Artist Vincent Van Gogh, Year 1889, Oil on canvas, Dimensions 73 cm × 92 cm (28¾ in × 36¼ in)

"지도에서 도시나 마을을 가리키는 점을 보면 꿈을 꾸게되는 것 처럼,
별이 반짝이는 밤하늘은 늘 나를 꿈꾸게 한다.
타라스콩이나 루앙에 가라면 기차를 타야 하는 것처럼,
별까지 가기 위해서는 죽음을 맞이해야 한다...
늙어서 평화롭게 죽는다는 건 별까지 걸어 간다는 것이지."

고흐가 동생 Theo에게 보낸 편지 내용 중의 일부라지요...
