What a beautiful poem! Kate, you are involved in so many interesting things. I wish I lived closer so that I could visit the Preserve more easily. I looked up the website and very much enjoyed learning about it. ❤️

With Rachel in Her Refuge

But man is a part of nature,

and his war against nature 

is ultimately a war against himself.    – Rachel Carson

In this refuge named for you

trees topple now and lean

I see you in the shape of the land

your head to the east 

your sea-combed hair

spread across the marsh

your mouth the river’s mouth

your hands the estuary’s fingers

patient for spring

waiting as the blowdowns

erode your sides, slide and pull

the very earth of you oceanward.

Returning like sea water 

to salt pans, you wait

for the white-throat in the stillness

of snow falling on dry leaves,

wait for your voice to rise

through half a century’s abuse

into our time of wildfires

fracking    droughts    floods:

challenging man and his war

against nature once again,

a still small voice

still waiting to be heard.

——Kate Cheney Chappell
