The Orchard tapestry

The Orchard tapestry

The Orchard tapestry wallhanging is the Summer part of The Seasons tapestry of 1890. It was designed by William Morris and John Henry Dearle and is now at the Victoria and Albert Museum. There are four figures, one per season, with verse by Morris.

In Verses for Pictures from Poems by the Way he wrote:

Midst bitten mead and acre shorn,
The world without is waste and worn,

But here within our orchard-close,
The guerdon of its labour shows.

O valiant Earth, O happy year
That mocks the threat of winter near,

And hangs aloft from tree to tree
The banners of the Spring to be.
