The Poetry of Nature

“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”

 “I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, to live so studily and Spartan-like as to put to rout all that was not life, to cut a broad swath and shave close, to drive life into a corner, and reduce it to it’s lowest terms…”

“The indescribable innocence and beneficence of nature – of sun and wind and rain, of summer and winter – such health, such cheer, they afford forever!”

Henry David Thoreau, Walden
