Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment

Ed Hessler

Good morning from the Center for Global Environmental Education, Hamline University on May 21, 2021, the 141st day of the year which is equal to 203,040 minutes (38.63% of the year). Sunrise is at 5:32 am and sunset is at 8:42 pm, providing us 15h 04m 53s of sunlight.

Quote. The vagueness of the concept of (nature) allows us to believe that humans exist outside it. And if we can imagine that nature is over there, far away, we can also imagine that the damage we are doing to it is sad but not dangerous.--Michelle Nijhuis. Yale Environment 360

A couple of comments about today's poem. I posted a poem last week by the same poet and I should have published it earlier when spring was springing but take refuge in a greeting Badger Bob Johnson, the late Wisconsin hockey coach, who, no matter the day of the year, would say: "It is a great day for hockey." This is true for poetry and poems. It is a great day for this poem no matter how late in the season. For information about the poet see here.
