Earth Lessons

“Earth teach me to forget myself as melted snow forgets its life.
Earth teach me resignation as the leaves which die in the fall.
Earth teach me courage as the tree which stands all alone.
Earth teach me regeneration as the seed which rises in the spring. ”
– William Alexander

  1. Nancy, what a beautiful poem — a philosophy really isn’t it? I love this little gem. Your photo is absolutely dynamite!! make that Dynamite with a capital “D”.


  2. Well, I’ve only been to Canada once. My husband had a medical meeting there ten years ago and it was sort of our belated honeymoon. But I can imagine what the weather is like!

  3. Sometimes you read something and it reaches down inside you and says Hey, this is here for you right now.
