Words for Day 6

Published by Olly Blackburn

We are all born from the same celestial seed;
all of us have the same father,
from which the earth, the mother who feeds us,
receives clear drops of rain,
producing from the bright wheat
and lush trees,
and the human race,
and the species of beasts,
offering up foods with which all bodies are
to lead a sweet life
and generate offspring…
— Lucretius, De Rerum Natura
