"What strikes someone coming in from outside is the incredible amount of energy, enthusiasm and commitment that has been shown in defense of this natural resource over several generations. This has not been a case of just a handful of committed individuals but a significant proportion of local residents, their children and other students in local schools, their teachers, local government officials and representatives of the people, all working collaboratively." - Tom Scott
(I will move away from Butler Pond where I have been living together for three years.)
Come and see the charming morning at Butler Pond.
You just walk quietly,
The morning light spilled over the lake,
Falling flowers appease the waves.
The wild duck was still sleeping on the shore.
The red dragonfly has landed on the turtle shell.
The big frog on the other side, wow wow wow wow...
You can also run,
Gliding over aster, dandelion and trifolium,
Under the shadow of mottled trees on both sides
A squirrel jumped by.
The woodpecker is not far away, da da... da da...
There is light, fog, and floral fragrance.
There are maple oaks and locust trees, rustle... rustle...
Are you leaving?
Don't forget to look back and cherish
Some laughter, some memories, only belong to you...
"Be good, I will come back to see you"
- Fushuang Li
