With the power of the mind put into practice for conserving nature, we can make the whole world a better place because we are part of nature, made of fire, water, earth, and air.
In our annual celebration of this year’s Earth Day, we want to spread the spirit of Mother Nature. We want all to find the beauty of life in music from the trills of birds in the rhythm of running brooks, words of wisdom in the susurrus of trees, and books in the vivid scarlet twilight of the sunset lingering in the west. The wonders of nature tame belligerent brutes and soften the hardened hearts of cynics.
One-touch of nature makes the whole world kin. In the arms of Mother Nature, we are all her children, so keeping the earth clean and livable is our filial duty to her.
The golden curtain is drawn After Helios’s chariot is gone; The pale hues of passion shine In the sweet soft twilight; The Hesperides open heaven with the golden apples bright; Selena rides in the moon chariot Hecate waits at the crossroads; I search for my star spirited away into the world of gods till dusk to dawn.
The dauphin ascends to the throne With a poise, he reigns there And calls for absolute power To claim his supremacy alone. The queen sees the revolt And with sweets to the sweet Wields the magic flurry wand And spirits him away to the beyond.
My heart is longing Though my mind is confused. My soul is tired of sighing, My spirit is revolted, Time flows rapidly, Woes disappear slowly, I’m tired of repining, Will the universe conspire To reset it all anew As if all of this were a dream In the likeness of truth?
I never told my wishes But let my concealment, like a furnace of fury, feed on my eyes riveted by ire and impudence; I eternally pined in thought, And with a blue and gray melancholy I sat like Longing on a pew, smiling at Grief and teardrops welled in the windows of my soul. No other Gods listened to my pleas; No other Sun lit up my heaven, No other star ever shone for me. And even yet, I dared not let my useless passion and vain hope languish in rapturous, radiant pain; Drinking deep of that profound anguish, How could I find my place again?
