The Leaskdale Manse NHS and the LMMSO were honored by a visit from the Muraoka sisters, Mie and Eri, on the 31st of August. The granddaughters of Hanako Muraoka arrived after attending a ceremony in P.E.I. Canada, with Japanese Princess Hisako of Takamodo, to mark the opening of a park commemorating Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Hanako Muraoka’s translation of “Anne of Green Gables” in 1952, “Akage no An” (Red-haired Anne) has become not only one of the most popular girls’ books in Japan but a part of Japanese culture itself.

Wednesday, July 31, our Afternoon Luncheon Tea host Ruth Greenlaw, will share with us the artistry she so thoughtfully derived from her personal travel experiences. A Montgomery fan, Ruth will also share her inspirations gained from the works of L.M.M. Here is just a “teaser” of the delicate works to be discussed, entitled Irises.

Dr. Kate Scarth, Chair of L.M. Montgomery Studies at the University of P.E.I. is developing a course for the Lucy Maud Montgomery Institute, which is using interviews from Montgomery scholars. Pictured in the parlour of the Leaskdale National Historic Site is Dr. Lesley Clement, who just happens to be the LMMI’s New Visiting Scholar, and who chose the Manse parlour as the setting for her interview. Lesley is the author of L.M. Montgomery’s Rainbow Valleys: The Ontario Years, 1911-1942, co-edited with Rita Bode. Behind the camera preparing to film the UPEI interview is Stuart Blower.

SPRING SONG

HARK, I hear a robin calling!

And the orchard-bloom is falling

 List, the wind is from the south! 

Sweet as kisses on the mouth. 

In the dreamy vale of beeches

 Fair and faint is woven mist, 

And the river’s orient reaches

 Are the palest amethyst. 

Every limpid brook is singing

 Of the lure of April days; 

Every piney glen is ringing

 With the maddest roundelays. 

Come and let us seek together

 Springtime lore of daffodils, 

Giving to the golden weather

 Greeting on the sun-warm hills. 

Ours shall be the moonrise stealing

 Through the birches ivory-white; 

Ours shall be the mystic healing

 Of the velvet-footed night. 

Ours shall be the gypsy winding

 Of the path with violets blue, 

Ours at last the wizard finding

 Of the land where dreams come true. 

LM Montgomery
