defiance

Where equanimity is illustrated in affairs

helve produced from a little seed sown

Shapely Naked

boundless impatience of restraint

Nothing endures but personal qualities

Where the populace rise at once

the dead advance as much as the living

beggarly arguments

actions that rely on themselves

Superior Being

never ending audacity of elected persons

glad clear sound

To be lean'd and to lean on

served those out of mind

doors giving many entrances

bracing the earth

Welcome all

children to be

laws of nature

shapes arise

Away! using axes

Independence the natural life of the woods

Chop, Chop, Chop ….

Beauty of Woodsmen , Wharton Esherick, The Song of the Broad Axe 1924

Weapon, shapely, naked, wan!  
Head from the mother’s bowels drawn!  
Wooded flesh and metal bone! limb only one, and lip only one!  
Gray-blue leaf by red-heat grown! helve produced from a little seed sown!  
Resting the grass amid and upon,          
To be lean’d, and to lean on

Walt Whitman

A Story of Building

“When we build, let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present use alone. Let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for; and let us think, as we lay stone on stone, that time is to come when those stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, ‘ See! This our father did for us’ ”  

John Ruskin
