Colt

Horse colt scratchingDo you get up from bed like a young colt?
Charged up, refreshed, and ready to embark?
When daybreak dawns, you should wake up and bolt!

When you awaken, is it with a jolt?
To trumpet herald to the morning lark?
Do you get up from bed like a young colt?

Cast off the covers of the night and molt!
The dream is ended.  So too is the dark.
When daybreak dawns, you should wake up and bolt!

The lark is singing—take the day’s revolt!
The night is done! The day is calling: Hark!
Do you get up from bed like a young colt?

Or are you mumbling, like a fumbling dolt,
Defeated, an effete and mum remark?
When daybreak dawns, you should wake up and bolt!

Feel every waking cell—a thunder——bolt————
The aura that surrounds you——reel,,, with spark!!!
Do you get up from bed like a young colt?
When daybreak dawns, you should wake up and bolt!
Tribute To:  Helen & Scott Nearing  By Dr. Timothy Ross Whelan

(Helen 1904—9/17/1995; Scott: 1883—8/24/1983)
 Helen & Scott Nearing represented the best in a couple seeking direct experience through self-reliance, to follow in the path of the Transcendentalist teachers.
 
 It is a sign of deep insight and high character that my parents met with Helen and Scott Nearing, shortly before he died.  They celebrated together on Scott’s one hundredth birthday, snacking freshly popped popcorn.
 
 Professor, author of many books, and social critic, Scott married Helen and moved to Vermont to establish their first homestead, building all from scratch.  When the nearby acreage was bought up by a ski resort, they packed up for more remote vistas and moved to Maine.
 
 Once again building from scratch, the Nearings continued in the daily activities of hard physical labor in the maintenance of their homestead.  Scott worked with simple garden tools, working with the earth to grow raw organic vegetables—best in natural hygiene.
