Herman Hesse and Trees

I heard this and read the words this morning. It is incredibly moving. The words were written by Herman Hesse. They are read here by Natascha McElhone.

I encountered this when reading a recent post from Brainpickings and I owe Maria Popova, its creator, a debt of gratitude for it.

  1. Colleen, I’m very happy to help start your morning in a positive frame of mind. I love Hesse’s poem and Natascha McElhone’s reading of it was, in my view, spot on!
