Creeping Plague, painting in acrylic, AVR 2002
"There was once a town in the heart of America where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings…Then a strange blight crept over the area and everything began to change …Mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens, the cattle and chicken sickened and died …There was a strange stillness… The Few birds seen anywhere were moribund, they trembled violently and could not fly. It is a spring without voices." - Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

Mourn not, every one is mourning,
And no one comes to your care;
Creeps the devil wind screaming
And falls silent the day after.

Lo! the land is blooming once again,
The sea calm, the birds singing;
Grows back the forest, the hills green,
Sans man, once all knowing.
