What a peaceful scene...shade from the warm sun, prairie grass, and a red tin barn roof.
Below are a few random photos of yesterday's drive on the prairie.
A faded Texas Purple Thistle...
Corn...already shoulder high.
And finally, a stone wall from year's gone by.
A few lines from Helen Keller's poem
The Song of the Stone Wall
"The walls have many things to tell me,
And the days are long. I come and listen:
My hand is upon the stones, and the tale I fain would hear
Is of the men who built the walls,
And of the God who made the stones and the workers."
May this be the beginning of a wonderful week...
What a lovely stone wall...thank you for sharing this!ReplyDelete
I should have shown the full lenghth of it....there must have been lots of man-hours in building it so many years ago. I can just imagine an entire family working on it together.Delete
Beautiful shots! I like the old barn!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Brian....I love the old barns, too!Delete
What a gorgeous post and poem! I looked back at some of your other posts (the great blue heron, your son's adorable pup, etc.). You take fabulous photos!!! Thanks for visiting my new studio office! I just hope the gallery wall turns out how I'm envisioning it in my head! Have a great week!... DonnaReplyDelete
Thanks, Donna, for your kind words. I thought Helen Keller's words were so fitting for the photo. There is a story, waiting to be heard, with each stone wall or stone fence.Delete
I love these pictures, especially the old tin roof. I sure have not seen any corn around these parts that pretty and green!ReplyDelete
