The Shingled Roof

 

The Callis family is as passionate about roofs as a surgeon would be about his work.

 

A roof covers and protects everything and everyone underneath it. 

 

The lines below express the feeling we have about roofs,

 

especially roofs that shelter a family.

 

 

"The shingled roof through darkness makes

 

Its own more intimate firmament,

 

Drumming with storm, a simple voice

 

To speak the luxury of content."

 

from "A Simple Voice"
