Pic(k) of the Week: Poetry, in repose

Poetry, in repose

The gardens of our lives
Were our Family and the Arts.
We live on -
While our precious legacies
Continue to bloom and flourish.

This small bronze sculpture —of a young girl reading a book— sits atop a small stone pedestal in Cator Woolford Gardens, just east of Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

The poem above is carved into the open pages of the book. The sculpture itself is named Poetry. A plaque below reads: "Dedicated on June 12, 2002, in loving memory of [sisters] Isabelle Woolford Kennedy and Charlotte Woolford Crawley." The artist is Teena Marie Stern (of whom I've found little information).

A peaceful moment. 10 December 2020.
