Irving Nature Park
By Stephen Downes

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.

Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

-Albert Einstein

By jurvetson

I’ve traveled about a bit in my time,

And troubles I’ve seen a few.

And found it better in ev’ry clime

To paddle my own canoe;

My wants are small I care not at all.

If my debts are paied when due.

I drive away strife, in the ocean of life

While I paddle my own canoe.

If a hurricane rise in mid’day sky

And the sun is lost to view

Move steadily by, with a steadfast eye

And paddle your own canoe.

Fields of daisies that grew in bright green

And blooming so sweet for you

So never sit down, with a tear or a frown

But paddle your own canoe.

– Irish ballad

Wilde paarden / Wild horses
By jankie

Across the plain
Running wild and free
Thundered the horses joyfully
They stopped to graze
And looked behind
To see if it was the right choice of mind
They ran again
And spread their wings
These hoses were birds
Among other things
A mighty white stallion
Zoomed right to the front
His partner in tow
They started the hunt
Fora pasture of green
Or a lake of blue
When they came near
They certainly knew
They slowed to a halt
And bedded to rest
The mighty white stallion
And his sorrel knew best.

-By Amber Hopwood
