Recalling to myself a season past: 
the heat of the moment
         the fear in the populace
         the devastation of these glorious places:
the fires. The fires: 
the pounding of hearts
the floods that followed
the lament, oh the lament
         what have we done.
         Dear Earth our home what have we allowed
         on our watch we have tilted the natural world
         beyond crisis into peril.
