World Famous Timeless Masterpieces - Michelangelo

Michelangelo's Pieta in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarotti Simoni (March 6, 1475 - February 18, 1564) commonly known as Michelangelo, was an Italian Renaissance painter, sculptor, architect, poet and engineer. Despite making few forays beyond the arts, his versatility in the disciplines he took up was of such a high order that he is often considered a contender for the title of the archetypal Renaissance man, along with his rival and fellow Italian Leonardo da Vinci. He died on February 18, 1564 in Rome at the age of 88.

In 1919, Renoir visited the Louvre to see his paintings hanging with the old masters. He died in the village of Cagnes-sur-Mer, Provence-Alpes- Cote d' Azor, on December 3, 1919.

Memories linger in our hearts and mind
Bittersweet memories of our first love
When the world was young
And so much better then.
Memories of our youth as we remember
the days we used to fish by the lake
As fishes were jumping up, frolicking in
the waters.
Memories of rain drenched bodies as we
shrieked and played along the driving
Memories of bygone years when joys were
aplenty and sorrows were nowhere to
be found.

Why is it so much wonderful when we think
of the past?
People were much warmer then and smiles
were the greetings of everybody.
Money was never scarce then and you can buy
so many things with a little cash on hand.
How wonderful were the melodies of yesteryears.
They lulled us to sleep in peaceful slumber as
we lived our lives as carefree as the birds
in the skies.
Ah memories, sweet memories of wonderful days
gone by.

Jesus Saves! Jesus Heals! Jesus Gives Eternal Life. Jesus Is The Same Yesterday, Today And Forever.
