Poet's Notes about The Poem

It is approaching winter here in the Cape (South Africa) . Table Mountain (a World Heritage Site) is covered in beautiful flora. Fires are often the result of carelessness by people using the nature trails. It takes many years for the full splendor of the flora to come into its own again. It is an appeal for all to take care not to damage the environment when they are enjoying nature.

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
