Who Speaks


Who speaks for animals who cannot talk?

Who sees for flowers which are blind?

Who guards the river which has but one course?

Who represents the mountain in time?

Who comes here to argue for the life of beavers?

Who will tell of the importance of snails?

Who has seen the mantis shed its skin?

Who believes in butterfly wings?

I am nature's advocate

Ten million birds

Ten million trees

Ten million animals

Ten million fish

Are mine.

I will fight you in this room

and out of it.

I will dare you to define

Progress

on the face of a dime.

-Nancy Wood
