    (Title After Goward)

    Kathleen Pyle, April 6, 2014

    Before Adam met Eve

    lichens had it all arranged.

    Algae, meet Fungus.

    Together we can save the world.

    Before birds grew wings,

    Lichens stayed aloft,

    nested in bark cradles,

    embraced big rocks,

    wind lullaby caressed.

    Before fairies sprinkled dust

    lichens evolved a better way.

    Waved their wands

    scattering spores --

    the magic spell of more.

    Before caged Sybil

    ranted ancient life's end,

    lichens silently mourned

    the end of rain,

    the death of trees.

    Nice, appropriate poetic note. Great meeting today. Better than I anticipated. I've been on the boards of multiple non-profits, thought today's meeting went surprisingly well.
