Plant a birch or maple tree
Shade for tomorrow.
The rain forests wane,
birds disperse into thin air,
flee colorful ghosts.
Halt global warming!
There's nothing more important,
'cept global cooling.
I though these were pretty cool nature poems by Li Po:
Talk in the MountainsYou ask me, `Why dwell among green mountains?'
I laugh in silence; my soul is quiet.
Peach blossom follows the moving water;
Here is a heaven and earth, beyond the world of men.
Silent NightMoonlight floods the end of my bed.
I wonder, has frost fallen?
Sitting up, I look at the moon.
Lying back, I think of home.
Summer in the mountainsToo lazy to shift my white feather fan
I lie naked in the green woods.
Hanging my hat on a rock,
I bare my head to the breeze in the pines.
(Li Po, Chinese, 701-762, versions I.M.)
