That is a beautiful poem. I'm glad you saved it and shared. I grew up in upstate NY. I could feel the days being relived in my mind as you described them inside your poem. As a poet, I suppose that's the desired effect.
Your very good. You should keep writing poetry when the mood strikes.
If he is way ahead of the game and in the process of "solving" it, why has his administration spent the last six years denying that it's even real? Why has he made no major speeches addressing the problem? Why doesn't congress have in hand a blueprint, with benchmarks for progress? Oh yea, that sounds an awful lot like the Kyoto treaty he said was not necessary, and that we would not participate in.
You can pretty well size up what this Administration is up to. Basically, it is the opposite of what they say. So, now if they say they are solving it, you can pretty well be certain it's on the back burner.
