o sweet spontaneous earth

O sweet spontaneous

earth how often have
the
doting

         fingers of
prurient philosophers pinched
and
poked

thee
,has the naughty thumb
of science prodded
thy

beauty       .how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
gods
     (but
true

to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic
lover

      thou answerest

them only with

                       spring)

                           - e. e. cummings


The moisture is good.  What can I say.

Happy Earth Day.  Be aware of your impact. Do what you can.  Leave this place better than you found it.  

We're still recovering from the legacy of James G. Watt (1981-1983).  "If the troubles from environmentalists cannot be solved in the jury box or at the ballot box, perhaps the cartridge box should be used."   Bless my soul!
