Three Muses - Lyric

My mother loved the old hymns, and this was one of her favorites.  I think it reminded her of home.  
It was written in 1850 by a Dr. William Pitts, after a trip to Bradford, Iowa and a valley nearby.  The church still stands, and is a popular tourist spot.

  2. A beautiful illustration of the lyrics, taking the viewer into a world that sadly no longer exists. Touching and thought-provoking.
