He places his foot on the leg of his cane, which leans against the side of the structure. The woman, identified in the poem text as a widow, is dressed in a black gown and veil which a white lace collar under her chin. She holds a white handkerchief in her hand and returns the man’s gaze. A rose bush and other plants grow beside the garden structure. There is a house in the background. Full page.
