I saw a T-shirt with its name, as I walked around Stonehenge’s rocks of blue.

And then on a ball cap as I stood looking up at the Eiffel tower,

proclaiming itself, worthy of attention in front of this icon of France’s power.

from this Eden hillside, with all nature’s powers galore.

Be sure of this.

We will make nature bend to our will again, and rebuild it better than before.
