Nineteen couplets on the cost of progress.

In the latest issue of the New Yorker, there is a poem by our friend Wendell Berry. It's called "A Speech to the Garden Club of America" and you should read it. You can't top this: "Let us enlighten, then, our earthly burdens / By going back to school, this time in gardens"
