” There are times in our lives when the stress becomes overwhelming, or our souls feel sick when we see corruption, bigotry, and greed in the very institutions that have pledged to serve the people. At other times in our lives, we are stressed when relationships die, we lose a job, or we become seriously ill. At those times, we find ourselves in dire need of peace.

Nature is the best place for me to find peace. The following poem, written by Edna St.Vincent Millay, describes this perfectly.”  Yu/stan/kema

 

AFTERNOON ON A HILL.

I will be the gladdest thing

Under the sun!

I will touch a hundred flowers

And not pick one.

 

I will look at cliffs and clouds

With quiet eyes,

Watch the wind bow down the grass,

And the grass rise.                                                  

 

And when lights begin to show

Up from the town,

I will mark which must be mine,

And then start down!

EDNA ST. VINCENT MILLAY.
