Earthday – Wishing by Ellen Wheeler Wilcox

“...the care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope.”

Wendell Berry

In honor of EARTHDAY, I am sharing a poem by Ella Wheeler Wilcox which I found in one of my mom’s old prayer books.  I fell in love with this poem over 25 years ago, and never did any research on the author.  So here is an excerpt from WIKI.

“A lonely day is God’s way of saying that he wants to spend some quality time with you.” 
― Criss Jami

You have somewhere to go, you are already a bit late leaving, so you hurry up, grab your stuff, make sure everything is locked up tight, and go. It is a gorgeous spring day, and you feel more alive than ever.
