Earth Friendly Psalm 23

Farmer Marguerite Casparian was kind enough to forward a copy of a poem by her friend, George Ella Lyon. Even as autumn has begun to descend upon us in the Northeast of the United States, these lush, verdant lines are welcome, refreshing and full of life and comfort for all. Thank you, George Ella and Marguerite for your offering us all this gift!


The Earth is my Mother.
I shall not want.
She invites me to lie down
in green pastures.
She offers me the calm
of still waters.
She restores my soul.
She leads me in the paths
of right relationship
for our home’s sake.

Yea, though I walk
in the circle of life and death
I shall fear no evil
for I belong here.
Goldenrod and walking staff
they comfort me.
She prepares a garden before me
in the presence of my emptiness.
My cup is full.
Surely wholeness and mystery
shall follow me
all the days of my life
and I shall dwell
in Earth’s sweet fields
