kind hearts and coronets

Howe’er it be, it seems to me
‘Tis only noble to be good.
Kind hearts are more than coronets,
And simple faith than Norman blood..

–Alfred, Lord Tennyson

A simple barn in Vergennes, with a cupola
too magnificent to miss. It made me stop
short one spring morning. I wanted to
share the poignant beauty of this humble
building wearing a regal crown in the soft
Vermont spring green light.
