I have received many kind notes such as this one:

Dear Miles,

Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your daily summaries of our beautiful world outdoors. With all this self isolation, your peeks into the beauty of nature are so appreciated.  The addition of poetry a wonderful touch.

Stay well and thank you for this act of kindness!

NATURE POETRY

Daffodils,
That come before the swallow dares, and take
The winds of March with beauty.                           – William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

MIles Hearn
