“Winter Crops”

garden“Timbered Classrooms” was inspired by a favorite poem by Wendell Berry, “A Timbered Choir”.  Regular readers will remember his quotes on School Consolidation .

I love Mr. Berry’s reference to “Winter Crops”; the ones we grow in our minds, especially this time of year.  Winter crops are always perfect, never a pest of any kind and everything grows in perfect, productive and lush harmony.

…and they are always somewhere in “The Future”.

The Visions Committee cultivated some bumper “winter crops” at their meeting last week, where “the future” basked in sunlight….

Please don’t let them cast a shadow on the little seedlings on the windowsill…..
