Michael Hoppe's "RENOUNCEMENT" IS BACK


Your Local Malcontent is very, very pleased to see for himself, and to share with all of you,

Michael Hoppe's extraordinary video of 
Beautiful Women, called "Renouncement".



FOR OVER TWO YEARS, 
THIS VIDEO HAS BEEN REMOVED
FROM YOUTUBE, 

FOR REASONS I CANNOT PERCEIVE-- BECAUSE THIS IS AN OVER-THE-TOP, 
BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE TO THE INNATE BEAUTY OF WOMEN.  

WOMEN ARE SO BEAUTIFUL, FROM THE LITTLIEST TO THE BIGGEST.  

AND FOR THE FIRST TIME, I CAN SHARE THIS THEME WITH MY BABY GIRL, AND SHE CAN SEE WHAT SHE MAY BECOME SOMEDAY~ BUT WHAT SHE ALREADY IS
TO ME, HER DADDY~~

AND FINALLY PERHAPS, I can understand what this video is about: 
A 19th century poem of unrequited, unfulfilled love of one woman, by another:
Please read the following poem, 


"Renouncement",
by Alice Maynell,
b. 1847- d. 1922


I must not think of thee; and, tired yet strong,
I shun the thought that lurks in all delight—
The thought of thee—and in the blue Heaven’s height,
And in the sweetest passage of a song.

O just beyond the fairest thoughts that throng
This breast, the thought of thee waits, hidden yet bright;
But it must never, never come in sight;
I must stop short of thee the whole day long.

But when sleep comes to close each difficult day,
When night gives pause to the long watch I keep,
And all my bonds I needs must loose apart,

Must doff my will as raiment laid away,—
With the first dream that comes with the first sleep
I run, I run, I am gathered to thy heart.
