Soft Pastels – Norwegian Style


The Boynton Chapel, Bjorklunden, Baileys Harbor, WI.

 A fissured rock

the perfect tree

she built a home

to honor Thee

 

You spoke to her

You speak to me

in drenching wind

and unsalted sea

 

The feathered pine

and wizened tree

the slumbering ore

call out to me

 

In land of rock

and birch and sea

she built a church

to honor Thee

      Yes! She intended the chapel and the lodge to be a “Sanctuary of Peace”. You can read more about it on the Lawrence University’s (Appleton, WI) website. Really a cool story. I love it there.
