Meet at the famous “twisted” catalpa tree in front of Lincoln Public Library.
Weather permitting (email email@example.com for latest update).
A special Quiet Walks and Poetry for Seekers collaboration! We’ll walk for a mile or two in the neighborhood, stopping four or five times beneath particular trees. Beneath the shade of each tree, we will hear a poem that in some way honors or features that tree species. In between each poem, we will walk in silence. At the end, we will gather in a circle and reflect on what we saw and heard.
“When I am among the trees,
especially the willows and the honey locust,
equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,
they give off such hints of gladness
I would almost say that they save me” (Mary Oliver).
Here are some of the poems we will be hearing.
