Happy Earth Day!

As we take some time out of our busy days in internet-land to appreciate the beautiful world around us I pulled a wonderful poem about Mother Nature herself by the legendary wordsmith Emily Dickinson.

Nature is What We See
By Emily Dickinson

Nature is what we see,
The Hill, the Afternoon-
Squirrel, Eclipse, the Bumble-bee,
Nay – Nature is Heaven.

Nature is what we hear,
The Bobolink, the Sea-
Thunder, the Cricket-
Nay – Nature is Harmony.

Nature is what we know
But have no Art to say
So impotent our Wisdom is
To Her Simplicity.
