"A bird doesn't sing because he has an answer. He sings because he has a song" -Joan Walsh Anglund
Welcome spring! Here is one of my favorite poems that I always think of at this time of the year. I especially think about it as I see the huge burr oak at Forsythe when I drive into Wines. What do you think?
Spring Oak by Galway Kinnell
Above the quiet valley and unrippled lake
While woodchucks burrowed new holes, and birds sang,
And radicles began downward and shoots
Committed themselves to the spring
And entered with tiny industrious earthquakes,
A dry-rooted, winter twisted oak
Revealed itself slowly. And one morning
While the valley underneath was still sleeping
It shook itself and it was all green.

The words say The earth is what we all have in common.
