Poetry on Windows: Students bring together community around stewardship of natural world
From Memorial Day weekend, through mid-June, the Stewardship Education Alliance (S.E.A.) presented Poetry on Windows. Poetry about the environment by students in Appleton, Camden, Hope, Lincolnville, and Rockland graced store windows in Camden, Lincolnville, and Rockport. As Wendell Berry writes, “It all turns on affection,” which is the core of what Poetry on Windows seeks to foster and embody—the hearts of our children and their love for the land, sea and air that we inhabit. If we don’t foster affection, we can’t hope for preservation.
