Remembering Bucks County poet, teacher, and activist Christopher Bursk
A unique legacy of learning
“…It’s amazing that old philanthropist the sun
hasn’t grown fed up with a species hardly able to appreciate its generosity.
Look at how the earth works
overtime not to swerve from its orbit.
And here I am worrying about the pros and cons of early retirement,
about everyone I’ll let down and
all that will be left undone if I’m not there to do it.
How like us humans to pretend that we’re indispensable.
To what? The light? The air?”
