The Tree Of Laughing Bells

Rating: 2.7
[A Poem for Aviators]

How the Wings Were Made

From many morning-glories
That in an hour will fade,
From many pansy buds
Gathered in the shade,
From lily of the valley
And dandelion buds,
From fiery poppy-buds

Timothy, laughing bells are mushrooms. That's a painting of them growing out of cow dung. ;)

This poem has meant a great deal to me for so many years now. For those who do not know Lindsay's work there is a painting that goes with this poem, of the Treee of Laughing Bells, done mainly in watercolor by the poet, but with red satin for the bells on the tree in a mixed media piece from the beginning of the century. Lindsay studied art in both Chicago and New York City in the first decade of the twentieth century. You should definitely find a collected with the pictures in it and see this painting. It will chill you.

I have just discovered this poet, and his collection is beyond words. They are all so beautiful and very well written. Some even brought tears to my eyes!
