Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment

Ed Hessler

Good morning, it's Friday, December 10, 2021. 

Greetings from the Center for Global Environmental Education, Hamline University, Saint Paul, MN where sunrise is at 7:40 am and sunset is at 4:30 pm. There will be 8h 50m 45s of sunlight as winter begins to tighten its grip.

To put this another way, 92.15% of the year has passed on this 340th day of the year (48 weeks 4 days).

It is National Lager Day (Cheers!) and Foodimentary has some pictures, facts and food history, again stretching this segment of the report. More importantly, it is Human Rights Day and National Day has a good description and also includes National Lager Day with more details, plus a couple of other unofficial occasions to note.

Quote. "Now winter nights enlarge/ The number of their houres."--Thomas Campion, The Third Booke of Ayres. 

Today's poem is by Martin Espada.
