Week Sixteen: Paintings and Poetry No.16: Madonna of the Rabbit by Titian (1530)

The painter is drawing a comparison:
To hold the child in your hand
Is like taking a rabbit in your hand
The child’s heart and it’s sinew

Until he is grown with large legs
His old soul is yet in the child’s body
His journey of life depicted in art
There are periods in his life and story
