Enter these enchanted woods, You who dare.

George Meredith 1828-1909

On the coast of Coromandel Where the early pumpkins blow. In the middle of the woods Lived the Yonghy-Bonghy-Bò.

Edward Lear 1812-1888

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now Is hung with bloom along the bough, And stands about the woodland ride Wearing white for Eastertide.

Alfred Edward Housman 1859-1936

Now, of my threescore years and ten, Twenty will not come again. And take from seventy springs a score, It only leaves me fifty more.

Alfred Edward Housman 1859-1936

And since to look at things in bloom Fifty springs are little room, About the woodlands I will go To see the cherry hung with snow.

Alfred Edward Housman 1859-1936

I am for the woods against the world, But are the woods for me?

Edmund Blunden 1896-1974

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, There is society, where none intrudes, I love not man the less, but Nature more.

George Gordon Byron, Lord Byron 1788-1824

There is a spirit in the woods.

William Wordsworth 1770-1850

The summer — no sweeter was ever, The sunshiny woods all athrill.

Robert William Service 1874-1958

It ceased; yet still the snails made on A pleasant noise till noon, A noise like of a hidden brook In the leafy month of June, That to the sleeping woods all night Singeth a quiet tune.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge 1772-1834

O nightingale, that on yon bloomy spray Warbl’st at eve, when all the woods are still.

John Milton 1608-1674

The woods shall to me answer and my echo ring.

Edmund Spenser 1552-1599

If a man write a better book, preach a better sermon, or make a better mouse-trap than his neighbor, tho’ he build his house in the woods, the world will make a beaten path to his door.

Ralph Waldo Emerson 1803-1882

I’ve seen the forest adorn’d the foremost, But now they are…weeded away. For the flowers of the forest are withered…

Alison Cockburn 1713-1794

A Destination

The Artist As a child, I always enjoyed the wood and land.

Endless adventures of exploring the forest where I grew up.

Expeditions to conquer the river that flowed through.

But, the trees always made a lasting impression.

Their sizes, shapes, colors and patterns.

I am a visual designer who views the landscape in a different perspective.
