Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment 

Ed Hessler

Good morning from the Center for Environmental Education, Hamline University on June 11. It is day 162 of 2021 and we have spent 3888 hours of it or 44.38%. Sunrise is at 5:25 am and sunset is at 8:59 pm. There are 15h 33m 46s of sunlight here in St. Paul, MN.

It is National German Chocolate Cake day. Foodimentary tells us the fact about the name and then facts about cakes along with some food history. You will learn whether a president ever served hot dogs, an American gourment treat, to visiting dignitaries.

Quote.“Writers don’t write from experience, although many are hesitant to admit that they don’t. … If you wrote from experience, you’d get maybe one book, maybe three poems. Writers write from empathy.”--Nikki Giovanni (The Writer's Almanac, June 7, 2021

Today's poem is by Nikki Giovanni who had a birthday this week (June 7).
