“Lord watch over her.”


I was just looking at a photograph of one such, whom I’d describe as “agelessly young.”
It was taken recently; it is the daughter of someone I know, in a rural community in midwestern USA. She is at work outdoors. Everything about her posture conveys what is dutiful, humble, kindly. She is in the near background, wearing a sunhat that shadows her face. Her coarse work-dress goes almost shapelessly down to her ankles. She is carrying a bucket that must be full of water: its weight is apparent. I think: there are girls like that, there always were. From all this paucity of information, I can see that she is very beautiful, and the old male instinct of protection is stirred: “Lord watch over her.” On beautiful women : Essays in Idleness

That is an elegantly written essay. Thanks for bringing David Warren's site to my attention. "...the cold wither of transaction."
