Art: Nature of Emily by Artist Christopher Boswell
Nature

NATURE, the gentlest mother,
Impatient of no child,
The feeblest or the waywardest,—
Her admonition mild

In forest and the hill 
By traveller is heard,
Restraining rampant squirrel
Or too impetuous bird.

How fair her conversation,
A summer afternoon,— 
Her household, her assembly;
And when the sun goes down

Her voice among the aisles
Incites the timid prayer
Of the minutest cricket, 
The most unworthy flower.

When all the children sleep
She turns as long away
As will suffice to light her lamps;
Then, bending from the sky, 

With infinite affection
And infiniter care,
Her golden finger on her lip,
Wills silence everywhere.

Emily Dickinson 1830-1886

Choosing this poem came easily as I know exactly what the poet was feeling when she created this piece. I have experienced it first hand many times in the field creating myself.

This image was created exposing film in Yosemite National Park, California. I believe it is one of the most spiritual places on Earth. Christopher Boswell Art
