“A woman should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of her life, in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of the beautiful which God has implanted in the human soul.”
― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
One of the verses from Christina Rossetti’s poem, In the Bleak Midwinter. Written in 1872.
I saw this lovely barn and field of zinnias as my husband and I were golfing yesterday. I think the stanza of this poem fits it well!
