"New Years Night 1916" Duncan Campbell Scott

The Earth moans in her sleep
Like an old mother
Whose sons have gone to the war,
Who weeps silently in her heart
Till dreams comfort her.

The Earth tosses
As if she would shake off humanity,
A burden too heavy to be borne,
And free of the pest of intolerable men,
Spin with woods and waters
Joyously in the clear heavens
In the beautiful cool rains,
Bearing gladly the dumb animals,
And sleep when the time comes
Glistening in the remains of sunlight
With marmoreal innocency.

Be comforted, old mother,
Whose sons have gone to the war;
And be assured, O Earth,
Of your burden of passionate men,
For without them who would dream the dreams
That encompass you with glory,
Who would gather your youth
And store it in the jar of remembrance,
Who would comfort your old heart
With tales told of the heroes,
Who would cover your face with the cerecloth
All rustling with stars,
And mourn in the ashes of sunlight,
Mourn your marmoreal innocency?

happy customer

Thanks for the note.
Tim's building a 1940 pick up on our "el roberto" frame.

The frame arrived last Wednesday. I couldn't be more pleased with the fantastic workmanship. Spent the day yesterday mocking up my project. I will post some pictures when I get a little farther along.

Thank you for a great product.

always liked the gauges mounted crooked,
so when the needle is in the correct zone it's pointing straight up.
