Earth Verse

by Gary Snyder


Original Language English

Wide enough to keep you looking

Open enough to keep you moving

Dry enough to keep you honest

Prickly enough to make you tough

Green enough to go on living

Old enough to give you dreams

-- from Mountains and Rivers Without End, by Gary Snyder
