WHAT PRICE AUTOMOBILES?
Poetry by Noelene Sanderson

THUNDERING  MACHINES!
How little heed they take
of man or beast!
Or where to go, or how to make
alliance with
Nature's peace!
 
WHAT happens when I want to stop
and photograph some birds?
The fiendish mind my motor's got
ignores my firm resolve to stop,
and carries powerfully on
as if it hadn't heard!
 
STOP  and think awhile:
when we whip along
with doggie in the back,
and kids,
is it them or is it US,
in honesty,
enjoys the trip?
 
AND . . .what price Nature's Walks?
What price fresh air and exercise?
What happened to those early days
of peace,
while Nature talks?
