~Sunday Poem~

Maxfield Parrish 1913 from: The House Of Clouds by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Painting by Maxwell Parrish



I would build a cloudy House
For my thoughts to live in;
When for earth too fancy-loose
And too low for Heaven!
Hush! I talk my dream aloud---
I build it bright to see,---
I build it on the moonlit cloud,
To which I looked with thee.

Dear Anna,

Maxfield Parrish, I marvel his paintings! Once there was "Extasy" at my living room wall. Now, I don´t know where it is. What a petty!

I wish you a nice sunday. Me I am walking at seaside.

So long,
Cornelia
