Helen Avalynne Tawes Garden
|A pavilion in the center of the park.
||A park bench next to the pavilion.|
|A bronze sculpture of a swan, next to the pavilion. The sculpture is visible in the pavilion picture, just above the big planter in the foreground. You can click on either picture to enlarge it; use your browser's "back" command to return here. The swan sculpture had a plaque with a poem:
Between the woods the afternoon
Is fallen in a golden swoon.
The sun looks down from quiet skies
To where a quiet water lies,
And silent trees stoop down to trees.
And there I saw a white swan make
Another white swan in the lake;
And, breast to breast, both motionless,
They waited for the wind's caress...
And all the water was at ease.
