~Sunday Poem

Send sunflowers!
With my turkey-bone whistle
I am calling the birds
To sing upon the sunflowers.
For when the clouds hear them singing
They will come quickly,
And rain will fall upon our fields.
Send sunflowers!

by Amy Lowell (1874-1925)

~Edith Prellwitz

Edith Prellwitz studio.
As a young woman, Edith Mitchill Prellwitz was
determined to study art and began taking classes
at the Art Students League.
In 1887, at the suggestion of her teacher George
de Forest Brush, she enrolled in the Life Class,
where nude models were used--a defining step for a
young female artist in those days and one that
determined her course as a serious professional.
She married the artist Henry Prellwitz, and with
the painters Irving Wiles and Edward August Bell,
established an artists’ colony in Peconic, New York,
on the North Fork of Long Island.

~Sunday Poem

When the nights are done
And we see the sun
A new day dawns
With hope for some

When the fairies of spring
With warm breath breathe
The snow from the winters
Will leave their freeze


When the bellies of clouds
Can hold no more
They spread their rains
To wash earths shores

George Elgar Hicks

When the grub that lived
Leaves its cocoon
On the flight of wings
Will play till noon


When the days are done
And we lay us down
The stars will twinkle
In the moons playground


When the ends that come
Make it hard to see
There is something new
To set us free.

Poem by Robyn Blauw
Art by George Elgar Hicks
1824 - 1914

by Edmund Dulac .
Far out in the ocean, where the water is as
blue as the prettiest cornflower, and as clear as
crystal, it is very, very deep; so deep,
that no cable could fathom it:
many church steeples, piled one upon another,
would not reach from the ground beneath to the
surface of the water above.
There dwell the Sea King and his subjects.

by Hans Christian Andersen

E was an exquisite Elf
Who enjoyed being quite by herself
She delighted to play
In an elegant way
With things she found on a shelf.
