Nature, the Gentlest Mother - Speaks at Le Barn

Nature, the Gentlest Mother – Speaks at Le Barn

The image accompanying this blog was recently taken one early morning on the property of Le Barn, in North Stamford, Connecticut.

In the rush and whirlwind of every day living, moments like these captured forever in time remind us to acknowledge and appreciate the natural beauty and magnificence of nature.

With this in mind, we were been inspired to remind you of a much-loved poem written by Emily Dickinson, which marries so well with this image:

Nature­, the gentlest mother is,

Impatient of no child,

The feeblest of the waywardest,

Her admonition mild

In forest and the hill

By traveller be heard,

Restraining rampant squirrel

Or too impetuous bird.

How fair her conversation,

A summer afternoon,

Her household her assembly;

And when the sun goes down

Her voice among the aisles

Incite the timid prayer

Of the minutest cricket,

The most unworthy flower.

When all the children sleep

She turns as long away

As will suffice tolight her lamps,

Then, bending from the sky

With infinite affection

An infiniter care,

Her golden finger on her lip,

Wills silence everywhere.

– Emily Dickinson

(Nature, the Gentlest Mother)
