Filling the Well: Elinor Wylie


I love bright words, words up and singing early;
Words that are luminous in the dark, and sing
– Elinor Wylie 
from the poem "Pretty Words"


  1. Beautiful! Today's quote reminded me of Wendell Berry, saying, "I would not have been ... a writer at all except
    I have been wakeful at night
    and words have come to me
    out of their deep caves
    needing to be remembered."

  2. "up and singing early" - Lovely to end this evening, Michelle. Have a great week!

  3. Elinor Wylie sure has a way with words. The butterflies are beautiful. Thanks.
