Earth Day

What is Earth Day? Simply put Earth Day is a day that the world joins together to celebrate the Earth. Every year on April 22nd the United States and over 175 other countries around the world join together to celebrate the largest worldwide environmental event. On this day we take out the time to appreciate nature and learn ways to protect our environment.

Typically on this day you will find groups of adults and children in parks cleaning them and taking care of the plantlife.  This is also the day when wefind and learn ways to protect our environment and to keep our planet clean.  The first Earth Day celebrated in 1970 marked the beginning of the modern day environmental movement.

There is a rapture on the lonely shore,

The is society, where none intrudes,

By the deep sea, and music in its roar:

I love not man the less, but Nature more.

George Gordon

  • The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of a world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?  -  J. B. Priestley

Trees

I think that I shall never see

A poem as lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Joyce Kilmer


Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree
Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

Robert Frost

Lovely! I like Ralph Waldo Emerson's quote that says "nature never hurries." In these modern days, we don't have much patience for anything and sometimes we fail to appreciate little moments in our lives. We simply live too fast. Voted awesome!

Thanks Genna. I love nature myself. Walking through the woods, watching the waves crash on the shore, climbing a mountain to see the beautiful panaramic view at the top - it's all a beautiful thing.

Om, I agree. We all need to take the time and smell the roses. We seem to be in such a rush all the time that we miss the little things in life that make living worthwhile.
