Happy Earth Day! In honor of the earth, today write a nature poem. Take some time to sit and watch the local birds or wildlife. Remember a time you were in the woods and felt refreshed. Describe your camping tradition, a trying hike.

Yesterday I saw a hawk snatch a robin from my front yard. Two crows flew from the trees like knights to chase the hawk out of their territory. Our grass was left with a scattering of soft, small feathers. The crows and robins must travel together–they do this–different kinds of birds form a flock they travel with, around here from feeder to feeder, like a family to which we all belong.
