A to Z Challenge – O is for Ogden

“Progress might have been alright once, but it has gone on too long.”

Ogden Nash

I discovered this quote was a part of a poem Odgen wrote in 1962. I can’t image that he knew how appropriate it would be sixty years later in regards to what progress has done to the health of our planet. It sure seems it has gone on far too long with the levels of pollution from industries and the products they created. Just plastics alone weigh the earth down with so much pollution that will not revert to any natural form years from now, only pile up more. That is why I chose this quote.

Past letters…

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N

Paradise Lost

Fields of green

Skies of blue

Water as clear as glass

A gentle breeze on you face

The sun warming your skin

Take a deep breath of fresh air

The birds singing

The crickets chirping

A symphony of nature song

A black night sky

Diamond like stars

The moon lighting your way

Litter, smog, pollution

Atrocities against nature

Could leave this all imaginary
