And, William Morris, when I read your old chapter on the great arches and naves and little whimsical corners of the Churches of Northern FranceBrr-rr!

You never lied to us, William Morris, you loved the shape of those stones piled and carved for you to dream over and wonder because workmen got joy of life into them,
Workmen in aprons singing while they hammered, and praying, and putting their songs and prayers into the walls and roofs, the bastions and cornerstones and gargoylesall their children and kisses of women and wheat and roses growing.
