Flashes of Inspiration: During a Pandemic We Can Celebrate Nature
Today’s Flashes of Inspiration features David Hassler, director of Kent State’s Wick Poetry Center, who is sharing the poem, “Thank You, Tree.”
The poem was written by Fatou M’Baye, a fifth grade student at Holden Elementary School in Kent, in honor of a favorite tree that was on her school playground, where she would gather with her friends.
Hassler selected this poem to celebrate spring, Earth Day, and how all can enjoy and celebrate the beauty of nature even during a pandemic.
Flashes of Inspiration is a series of videos showcasing the talents of Kent State’s faculty and staff aimed at providing an uplifting respite from the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic.
