Vintage Poem for Scrapbooking, Card Making or Graphic Design: Back to the Farm (Part 3 of 4)


Part 3 (of 4) of a poem by Martha Gilbert Dickinson Bianchi called "Back to the Farm" and illustrated by N.C. Wyeth.

Off to the wood lot where brier bloom runs riot
And wary forest creature no hunter's snare deceives,
Virgin growth beguiling the solemn-hearted quiet
With songs of winter fires a-ripple through the leaves.

Up to the bars in the twilight's soft reaction --
Winding through the ferny lane to barns of stooping eaves
Welcoming at nightfall to simple satisfaction,
When the reeling swallow her dusky pattern weaves.

Vintage Poem for Scrapbooking, Card Making or Graphic Design: Back to the Farm (Part 2 of 4)


Part 2 (of 4) of a poem by Martha Gilbert Dickinson Bianchi called "Back to the Farm" and illustrated by N.C. Wyeth.

Down in the hayfield where scythes glint through the clover;
Lusty blood a-throbbing in the splendor of the noon --
Lying 'neath the haycocks as castling clouds pass over,
Hearing insect lovers a-piping out of tune.

Caught in the spell of old kitchen-garden savors --
With luscious lines retreating to hills of musky corn,
And clambering grapes that spill their clustering flavors --
Each in fragrant season filling Plenty's golden horn.
