Green Things – William Blake
Since I work with “green things” and all the energy of Mother Earth, I found this poem to be very poignant and true. Sadly pointed out is that some do not see the beauty of trees from the perspective of all that live within and on them, nor do they understand the incredible service they give to the earth and all human kind-including themselves.
I call them Standing People.
The tree which moves some to tears of joy
is in the Eyes of others
only as a Green thing that stands in the way.
