|| At a glance the old farm fence is overgrown and unkempt. Nearly unrecognizable now, its usefulness seems to have ebbed away with the passing years. Or has it? In her poem 'The Fence Row', author Lydia Finch Johnston invites readers to linger a bit in the magnificence of nature, wherever it is found, and to reflect on the simple truth that despite appearances, when left undisturbed, our natural world follows its divine course to bear fruit beyond measure. Johnston's gentle cadence in storytelling and lyrical poetic style are complimented seamlessly with the rustic, soulful art of Marge Kincade. Together, writer and artist strike a beautiful rhythm that blossoms in 'The Fence Row' and will enchant readers young and old for ages to come. --back cover.
