This poem is especially current with our situation of global warming now.
Even though it's a tough one to read, I felt Emerson's anger at the rape of
the beauty and sacredness of every element of our earth be it animal,
mineral, or vegetal in man's pursuit of profit and ego worship. And
because, according to him, everything on this earth is responsive and
intelligent, we reap the consequences of our thoughtlessness.
