A Blessing for the Woods - Michael S. Glaser

Before I leave, almost without noticing,
before I cross the road and head toward
what I have intentionally postponed—

Let me stop to say a blessing for these woods:
for crows barking and squirrels scampering,
for trees and fungus and multi-colored leaves,

for the way sunlight laces with shadows
through each branch and leaf of tree,
for these paths that take me in,
for these paths that lead me out.


Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950)

Better known by his pen name George Orwell, English novelist, essayist, journalist, and critic. His work is marked by lucid prose, awareness of social injustice, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism.

Orwell’s work continues to influence popular and political culture, and the term Orwellian – descriptive of totalitarian or authoritarian social practices – has entered the language together with many of his neologisms, including cold war, Big Brother, Thought Police, Room 101, memory hole, newspeak, doublethink, and thoughtcrime.

Fazlasıyla hoş bir müzikaldi. Ard arda bir sürü duyguyu koklamama neden oldu. Şimdi biraz yorgunum fakat emin olun değecektir.

‘ Bir kuş bir balığı sevebilir. Ama nerede yuva kuracaklar ? ‘ 

Keyifli seyirler.
