Rosa Bonheur - Mountain Goats, Arcangelo Corelli - concerto Grosso No. 2 in F Major, John Oxenham - God's Handwriting

The only action in this painting by Rosa Bonhuer is the water and the alert stance of the mountain goat.  I like the dark, warm colors of the mountain goat against the cool snow  and grey rocks. What details attract you?

Another lovely piece by Arcangelo Corelli;Concerto Grosso No.2 in F Major

John Oxenham seemed able to take a great thought and put it into a few beautiful words - today's poem from Selected Poems of John Oxenham by Charles L. Wallis is no exception....

                  God's Handwriting

He writes in characters too grand
For our short sight to understand;
We catch but broken strokes, and try
To fathom all the mystery
Of withered hopes, of death, of life,
The endless war, the useless strife,--
But there, with larger, clearer sight,
We shall see this--His way was right.
