Earth Day

One of my friends and I are going birding this morning at Codorus State Park  near Hanover PA... one of Pennsylvania's lovely green places.

Here are some photos and art and a poem for this day:

Virginia Bluebells in my garden

The Peace of Wild Things

By Wendell Berry
When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
