Quote of the Week

Mother and I in front of the family home. 1970.

“Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees takes off his shoes-
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.”
“Aurora Leigh” by Elizabeth Barret Browning {1806-1861}. Stanza 60. Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations. Published by Little, Brown and Company. Page 520.
