City Daily Photo Theme Day - Details



Birmingham sculptor, Elizabeth MacQueen's powerful sculpture The Four Spirits, was unveiled on the 50th anniversary of the bombing at the 16th Street Baptist Church taking the lives of four innocent little girls in 1963. Pictured here is Cynthia Wesley sitting on the bench with an open book in her lap.  Look closely and you see it's an excerpt from Y.B.Yeat's poem, The Stolen Child.

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.


Today my City Daily Photoblog friends around the world are sharing their take on this month's theme......details. Click here to see them all!

This certainly brings back memories. I was on my way to Chicago in 1963 to enter graduate school. For a time I thought I'd go south and march with King and others but with three little ones at home I couldn't do that. I do remember the bombing, though. :(

Didn't get around to theme day - new dimensions in overwork - but this is a wonderful example.

I love Yeats. We walked by his house in Dublin once.

Beautiful post, great words and the colors of the flowers in the first image add a poetic and wonderful touch to the sculpture!

Love the flowers in this photo, they make the difference between a photo of the sculpture and yours!
