About Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin House Complex

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.

Walking in wonder.

To full green leafed limbs waiting

For buds to blossom

Quiet harmony

Plays gently upon me

Stillness of gold

Best moments for me

Are the softly whispered “wows”

As we share this space.

Marie Bindeman  |  Volunteer since 2013

(Framed haiku on view at Martin House Museum Store, Summit Ave, Buffalo, NY)

There once was a man named Wright,

Who was of dubious height.

Had flowing capes and a cane,

Some thought him insane

But others thought perfectly right!

Sheltered under light and sky

Swaying prairie grass

Tawny, golden, Roman brick.

Two poems by John Zubricky  |  Volunteer since 2014
