There was a child went forth everyday,
And the first object he looked upon, that object he became,
And that object became part of him for the
day or a certain part of the day,
Or for many years or stretching cycles of years.
The early lilacs
became part of this child,
And grass and white and red morning glories, and white and red clover,

And the Third-month lambs and the sow's pink-faint litter,
the mare's foal and the cow's calf, . . .
a place to visit, it is our home. The most effective way to connect our children to nature is to connect ourselves.
