There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum trees in tremulous white;

Robins will wear their feathery fire,
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;

And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it is done.

Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,
If mankind perished utterly;

And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn
Would scarcely know that we were gone.

~ Sara Teasdale
(1884 - 1933)

@bird:matrix.orgAna Do not try to save the whole world or do anything grandiose. Instead, create a clearing in the dense forest of your life and wait there patiently, until the song that is your life falls into your own cupped hands and you recognise and greet it. Only then will you know how to give yourself to this world so worthy of rescue.

There is a parallel confusion in the teaching of language that has never been straightened out. Professional linguists nowadays may know what’s what, but children in school are still taught nonsense. They are told that a β€œnoun” is the β€œname of a person, place or thing,” that a β€œverb” is β€œan action word,” and so on. That is, they are taught at a tender age that the way to define something is by what it supposedly is in itself, not by its relation to other things.5

In a like manner Buckminster Fuller took issue with phrases such as β€œsunset” and β€œsunrise” noting that the sun neither rises nor sets and that such usage creates a kind of insanity in people by divorcing them from the world in which they live and inculcating a β€œpicture” of the workings of the Universe that is not accurate.
