Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment

Ed Hessler 

Greetings from the Center for Global Environmental Education (CGEE), Hamline University, June 18, day 169 of 2021 (46.30%). One hundred and seventeen work days. There will be 15h 36m 49 s of sunlight and the sun rises at 5:25am and sets at 9:02 pm.

And in just a two days, June 20 at 10:32 pm in St. Paul, we'll observe the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This day is 6h 51m longer than on the Winter Solstice. Here are 11 facts about the June or Summer Solstice. The earliest sunrise occurred on June 15 and the latest sunset is on June 26.

This is International Picnic Day and Foodimentary has five food finds about picnics and some history related to food.

Quote: I do not miss childhood, but I miss the way I took pleasure in small things, even as greater things crumbled. I could not control the world I was in, could not walk away from things or people or moments that hurt, but I took joy in the things that made me happy.--Neil Gaiman, writer

Today's poem is by Yehuda Amichai.

And here is "Summer," from Vivaldi's Four Seasons performed by Voices of Music and George Gershwin's "Summertiime" sung by Ella Fitzgerald..
