Beautiful Words January 9, 2011

Do not carve on stone or wood,
“He was honest” or “He was good.”
Write in smoke on a passing breeze
Seven words… and the words are these,
Telling all that a volume could,
…”He lived, he laughed and… he understood.”

Don Blanding (1894-1957)

Thanks to the wonderful Sarah for showing me this stunning poem. Simple, expressive, and passionate – this does what so many poets use thousands of words to try to achieve – states the truth.

Hopefully this blog might get a bit brainier this year – I am hoping to feature some beautiful poems, as well as some of my favourite artists and photographers. Slightly less photos of a pasty looking Lauren wearing dresses, anyway!
