So come forth into the light of things,
let Nature be your teacher.
Nature will bear the closest inspection.
She invites us to lay our eye level with her smallest leaf,
and take an insect view of its plain.
Henry David Thoreau
Touch the earth, love the earth, honour the earth,
her plains, her valleys, and her seas;
rest your spirit in her solitary places.
God, I can push the grass apart,
and lay my finger on Thy heart!
Edna St. Vincent Millay
