Happy Fathers' Day, and lines from Phyllis Webb's poem 'Making'

Posted by lucindaquilts on June 21, 2009 at 11:15 AM

Happy Fathers' Day to all the dads I know (including some quiltmakers who are also dads...)!

and, because our house and gardens here in Guad are full of quiet -- and 'noisy' -- blossoms, some lines from the poem 'Making':

"From the making made and, made, now making

certain order – thus excellent despair

is laid,and in the room the patches of the quilt

seize light and throw it back upon the air.

A grace is made, a loveliness is caught

Quilting a quiet blossom as a work." -- Phyllis Webb, Selected Poems, p.56
