Day 771: Tuesday, April 26, 2022

A poem shared by Marcie Dahlen



May we raise children

who love the unloved

things – the dandelion, the

worms and spiderlings.

Children who sense

the rose needs the thorn

& run into rainswept days

the same way they

turn towards sun…


And when they’re grown &

someone has to speak for those

who have no voice

may they draw upon that

wilder bond, those days of

tending tender things

and be the ones.
