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"
