InterNations Paris Ode to Spring
This is the most befitting moment to reconcile with global- minded friends making new ones or strengthening existing friendships after a two-year break.
On the occasion of the World Poetry Day on the 21 March, here is a poem from 'ILIAD'.
"Like the generations of leaves, the lives of mortal men.
Now the wind scatters the old leaves across the earth,
now the living timber bursts with the new buds
and spring comes round again.
And so with men: "as one generation comes to life, another dies away." ILIAD/ Poet: Homer / Year: 8th century BC
“The heart is like a garden.
It can grow compassion or fear, resentment or love.
What seeds will you plant there?”
— Jack Kornfield
