Marking the journey towards the the last chance for the continued survival of whole species and perhaps even our civilisation: a conference of world leaders, meeting just over the river from where I live.
Many voices make great songs, and
Many arms have the strength to save
For beach is not a beach without a
Billion pebbles and sand cannot become
Sand without the breaking of a
Billion waves. And field is not field unless
We fence it and forest is not forest if
We will not let it grow. Many feet make the
broadest footpaths and many hands lighten
The lift of heavy loads. For a sky is blind
But for a billion stars and without a billion
Screens we see nothing.
