A Lush Green Garden

Before the first ray of sunlight
on a frosty winter morn.
The frost has hazed the windows

Comments about A Lush Green Garden by David Harris

    Another interesting parable about the inevitable consequences of continued and continuous consumption. Have you read Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish by Michael Foreman? It's a splendid children's picture book which has a similar theme and a happily ever after ending. In the end, no matter what, green will prevail. Excellent poem. love, Allie xxxx

    There is a very popular book out now called The World without Us. This poem reminded me of it. No question that we'll pay if we don't acknowledge that the earth has a finite limit of resources and that we have to live within those limits. Good poem.

    A dire warning for mankind here. And you may be right. Will we go the way of the dinosaurs? A poem to contemplate......

    Love, Fran xxx
