    You nailed it with this poem......When governments and industries
    Lie choked by weeds in fertile rain
    For sure the few who stay alive
    Will laugh and grow to love again (Report) Reply

    A poem I love to return to. A touchstone. I collected it in 'My Favourite Poems' when I first joined Poemhunter, and whenever I am feeling jaded, tired of the huge mountain of poetry saying READ ME, READ ME, I remember this one, Song... Thank you for it. (Report) Reply
