Volunteers and Poetry
April 29, 2017
"When we come to understand architecture as the essential nature of all harmonious structure, we will see that it is the architecture of music that inspired Bach and Beethoven, the architecture of painting that is inspiring Picasso as it inspired Velasquez, that it is the architecture of life itself that is the inspiration of the great poets and philosophers."
Frank Lloyd Wright
Thank you to our volunteers for their dedication and service to the Martin House.

For Darwin Martin and Frank Lloyd Wright and those who share the Dream.
Plays gently upon me
Stillness of gold

Are the softly whispered “wows”
As we share this space.

Who was of dubious height.
Had flowing capes and a cane,
Some thought him insane
But others thought perfectly right!
Swaying prairie grass
Tawny, golden, Roman brick.
Two poems by John Zubricky | Volunteer since 2014
