Eastern Hemlock Forest, Hocking Hills, Ohio

I found a treasure for myself in the sweetest little book, at a yard sale, for 25cents. The title is, Let Nature Be Your Teacher, and it is a dimensional pop -up book filled with lovely, floral, country scenes that rise up at you and song birds that fly about when you turn the pages. My favorite verse in the 'little charm' is Leading, by Mary Carolyn Davies, which starts off with, Forests are made for weary men, That they may find their soul again." and ends with, "Far from the city's craft and fraud, O forest, lead me back to God."
I think Mary and I feel the same about being in the forest.
