To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,Emily Dickinson
One clover, and a bee.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
No matter how intently one studies the hundred little dramas of the woods and meadows, one can never learn all the salient facts about any one of them.Aldo Leopold
“Acts of creation are ordinarily reserved for gods and poets, but humbler folk may circumvent this restriction if they know how. To plant a pine, for example, one need be neither god nor poet; one need only own a shovel. By virtue of this curious loophole in the rules, any clodhopper may say: Let there be a tree – and there will be one.”~Aldo Leopold
