Un calendrier de tissus datant de 1965 représentant une oeuvre de l’artiste Warren Boucher Red cover bridge. L’extrait poétique vient d’un poème de Anderson M. Scruggs The covered bridge.
The covered bridge
Some part of life becomes oblivion;
Something whose roots lie deep within the heart
Of simple folk is lost, as one by one
These pioneers of other days depart.
Only the country folk, whose careless tread
Endears a dusty road, can ever know
The peaceful, clattering joy of rude planks spread
Above a drowsy creek that gleams below.
Here was refuge from the sudden showers
That swept like moving music field and wood.
And here cool, tunneled dark when sultry hours
Danced with white feet beyond the bridge’s hood,
Yet there are soulless men whose hand and brain
Tear down what time will never give again.
What shall the hearth remember? Poems Anderson M. Scruggs (S. Price Gilbert Editor, 1951, Contemporary poetry series)
