Will We? Will We Have Found The Tool Dylan Missed?

When the animals come to us,
asking for our help,
will we know what they are saying?

When the plants speak to us
in their delicate, beautiful language,
will be able to answer them?

When the planet herself
sings to us in our dreams,
wil be we able to wake ourselves, and act?

Gary Lawless, quoted in Earth Prayers from Around the World edited by Elizabeth Robers and Elias Amidon
