Carey Moon medium porcelain vase with handpainted water-rail bird hiding in the reedbeds. On the bottom is the last verse of the poem 'Inversnaid' by Gerard Manley Hopkins
"What would the World be once bereft
Of wet and of wildeness?
O let them be left,
Wildness and wet:
Long live the weeds
and the wilderness yet."
An appropriate plea for our times
