Friday Poem

Environment & Science Education, Poetry, Art & Environment

Ed Hessler

Deciduous by Linda Gregerson was published in Canopy (Ecco Press, 2022).

The original e-mail post from Poetry Daily included this comment from Ms. Gregerson  on the poem. It "was written in tribute and gratitude to the extraordinary Greta Thunberg and to all the passionate young activists who are fighting to preserve the beautiful, fragile, terribly endangered planet that is our only home."

The epigraph to the book is Dulce lignum which is translated as "Sweet the wood," from a Gregorian chant with quite a different intent.
