“The fate of an individual or a nation will always be determined by the degree of his or its harmony with the forces and laws of Nature and the universe. Man is not alone in the universe but is surrounded by sources of power, harmony and knowledge. The fullness of life depends upon man’s harmony with the totality of the natural cosmic laws. Our individual evolution is a job that has to be carried on day by day by each individual himself. It is a livelong task” Richard St. Barbe Baker
The Poplar his branches richly green
Broad to the winds did wildly fling;—
The first in beauty and in power,
All bowed before the forest-king.
But ere its brilliant leaves were sere,
Or scattered by the Autumn wind,
The voice merged into the buzz of autumn noises, and footsteps and other conversation
the wild geese went and came unchecked
Geese are Weed Destroyers they are close grazers
Very valuable in ridding grasslands or fields of troublesome weeds.
As the blear autumnal light burst forth
The Saskatchewan woodpecker drums
this musical rapping may be heard.
“He alternates his tapping with his stridulous call,
and the effect on a cool, autumn-like morning is very pleasing.”
“In that vast evergreen forest Nature works in perfect rhythm; roots digging deep or exploring nearer the surface for food and moisture. Imperceptibly Nature builds those mighty pillars with aisle innumerable, arches multiplex, in the cathedral of the forest.” Richard St. Barbe Baker
