U nekim se dijelovima svijeta Prvi maj slavi kao praznik rada, drugdje u svijetu slave plodnost i početak novog života, a negdje se naziva ARBOUR DAY – Dan sadnje drveća. Nisam danas bila u prilici posaditi drvo, ali mogu “posaditi “post o velikoj ljubavi – drveću.
Teško bi bilo živjeti, a još teže zamisliti Zemlju bez ijednog stabla u blizini. Bez njihove vječne obnove života, rasta, snage, pouzdanosti, šuštanja, zelenila, mirisa i hlada. Drveće, hvala vam!
Sretan vam svima prvi maj 🙂
CITATI O DANU DRVEĆA:
I think that I shall never see
A poem lovely as a tree.
A tree whose hungry mouth is pressed
Against the earth’s sweet flowing breast;
A tree that looks at God all day
And lifts her leafy arms to pray;
A tree that may in summer wear
A nest of robins in her hair;
Upon whose bosom snow has lain;
Who intimately lives with rain.
Poems are written by fools like me,
But only God can make a tree.
~Joyce Kilmer, “Trees,” 1914
Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money. – Poslovica Cree Indijanaca
If you would know strength and patience, welcome the company of trees. ~Hal Borland
The true meaning of life is to plant trees, under whose shade you do not expect to sit. ~Nelson Henderson
Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven. ~Rabindranath Tagore, Fireflies, 1928
Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness. ~Kahlil Gibran
For in the true nature of things, if we rightly consider, every green tree is far more glorious than if it were made of gold and silver. ~Martin Luther
God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand tempests and floods. But he cannot save them from fools. ~John Muir
I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines. ~Henry David Thoreau
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The next best time is now. ~Kineska poslovica
