Be Part of Something Old

Autumn Leaves, by Sandra Dieckmann

"Young friend, be part of something old.
Be home here in the great world, . . .
where forest wants to be your house, . . .
where wee birds carry your wishes far
and sunlight reaches for your hand. . . . "
    —excerpt from "Naknuwisha," by Kim Stafford 

What a lovely reminder (post-birthday, for me) that our age is also tied to the much older, ever changing earth.
