The crane stands at the silent door
one leg tucked, reflections of beauty
surround with sounds of nature in serenade.
Played in the wood, winds stroke the reeds
peacefully, a melody airy and bright,
Captured in water color.

I live five minutes from Mr. Burchfield’s home/gallery in West Sencea, NY. The Burchfield Nature and Art Center is an impressive complex and the inspiration for much of his work.
One of the largest collections of Burchfield’s work is in the Burchfield Penney Art Center at State University of New York at Buffalo State.
