Traveler's Rest 1 Traveler's Rest 1

Pastel, pencil, and watercolor
For Newby Day, of Charlottesville, Virginia, with continued gratitude from David Terry in 2009.
"In courtesy I'd have her chiefly learned/
Hearts are not had as a gift, but hearts are earned/
By those who are not entirely beautiful;/
Yet many, that have played the fool/
For beauty's very self, has charm made wise,/
And many a poor man that has roved,/
Loved, and thought himself beloved,/
From a glad kindness cannot take his eyes."
(Wm,. Butler Yeats, "A Prayer for My Daughter", 1921)
