CPLH, William Blake and His Followers, 4 Dec 1982 - 13 Feb 1983.

In early morning light a ploughman walks behind his yoked oxen. A woman stands at the edge of a grove, holding a pitcher in one hand and balancing another on her head with the other. White birds flutter up, ahead of the oxen, and over an arched stone bridge spanning a river. (Virginia K. Anderson 01/31/94)
