Reply Reminds me of the Groundhogs track, Garden, about a man who wants to turn back time. “But I’m not going to cut a single blade of grass, my garden will look just like the distant past, Before the days of agricultural land, before the time when pebbles turned to sand. ” Actually, that might be a bit too far back, before mankind arrived on the planet, but the sentiment is much the same. Reply Good to be compared with powerful sentiments like that – and I’m not ashamed that my words are sentimental. As Horace Walpole (whose Castle of Otranto I’ve just read) once said: the world is a comedy to those who think and a tragedy to those who feel. Just thought of some more lyrics that hit the spot. You may be able to hear them on this rather nice recording: Reply Yep, those words are very much on message. Excellent song, too. Thanks. Reply I love the idea of “rewilding” the earth. We have put far too much energy into trying to tame nature. (K) Reply It’s an idea, I hope and believe, that has found its right time. Apart from anything else, think of the local tourism possibilities – nature on your doorstep! Reply 👍👍☺ Reply 😀 Reply Ahh, if only we could. History suggests we’re experts in ‘knowing best’ the way things should be done. Reply True, and many ways to ‘know’ that aren’t too ‘knowing’ … Reply That’s how it seems from this perspective. Reply I also love the title, Rewild the Earth! We have definitely lost some things barrelling along on the turbulent wheel of “progress.” Nice acrostic poem, it does make us stop and think about it.
