Masterpieces of Victorian Architecture

The definition  for “Elegance” I think it would surprise you of just how many of these old Victorian homes are scattered all through out the United States and around the world!  If I were younger and had a lot more money, a lot more money I would definitely be living in a Victorian house right now.

If your wondering why I have posted Victorian houses on our poetry blog today, it’s because when I look at a Victorian home I see poetry. Every detail of these house were crafted with not just necessity but beauty. From the archways to the door knobs and door hinges it was pure art and pride…..pride, something that’s missing these days. To many, this kind of decor would be just too much, you know, too busy, also too much work and upkeep.  Notice how many different colors are painted on one house.    Folks were not afraid to express themselves. The homes had large beautiful porches and they made good use of them, totally awesome! 

Queen Anne is the most elaborate and the most eccentric. The style is often called romantic and feminine, yet it is the product of a most unromantic era — the machine age. The Queen Anne style became fashionable in the 1880s and 1890s.

Beautiful Kentucky


No greater place that I would want to be,

Then the beautiful bluegrass state of  kentucky.

Miles and miles of painted white rolling fences,

Early morning mist hovering over the green hills,

Well groomed horses ready to run for the thrills.

Fancy carriages pulled by the beauties strutting their stuff,

One ride, two rides, three rides, it’s never enough.

Fifteen picturesque distillery’s in the big city’s or in small urbans,

Some rum some gin but the bragger is the bourbon.

Maker’s Mark, Heaven Hill, Four Roses and Jim Beam,

Besides the horses, besides the hats, this is a jockey’s dream.

Every season to me at least seems just right,

Summer and spring  has it’s warmth in which I find delight.

Winter is cold and  crisp with a little…

Kentucky in Spring in Pictures

Warm, Cold, Warm Again Then Cold, it’s Spring!

Spring flowers Snowdrops Original oil painting mountain ...
The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you’re two months back in the middle of March.
 Robert Frost

Waiting for Spring 


Waiting for Spring 
I’m waiting for Spring and other nice things,
Are’t you?
I’m waiting for warmer weather,
I’m waiting for little things with feathers.
                                            Aren’t you?
I’m waiting for those pretty little spotted eggs,
For those little creatures with tiny stick legs,
Aren’t you?

March Winds

The March wind roars
Like a lion in the sky,
And makes us shiver
As he passes by.

When winds are soft,
And the days are warm and clear,
Just like a gentle lamb,
Then spring is here.
