To Make A Prairie… Emily Dickinson

Filed under: — Stormwind @ 11:34 am

Jackie sent this prairie quote along our way…  I like it, though native bees and other pollinators are definitely needed!

“To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee.  One clover, and a bee.  And revery.  The reverie alone will do, if bees are few.” – Emily Dickinson

    Here’s another quote from Ed Abbey, from his last novel. You can read more at the Tandy Hills website under the NOTES section, #27:

    “Prairie Country – and was there ever so
    gentle and undulant female and sweet a
    word as prairie. French derived from the
    Latin prataria, a meadow.”
