Sweet spontaneous

It was a beautiful sunny day. On the spur of the moment we decided to have lunch at Mount Tomah botanic gardens -- the cold climate gardens, now dressed in spring display.

Words to walk with:
From O Sweet Spontaneous by E. E. Cummings
O sweet spontaneous
earth how often have
the
doting

fingers of
purient philosophers pinched
and
poked

thee
,has the naughty thumb
of science prodded
thy

beauty .how
often have religions taken
thee upon their scraggy knees
squeezing and

buffeting thee that thou mightest conceive
gods
(but
true

to the incomparable
couch of death thy
rhythmic
lover

thou answerest
them only with

spring)
