Combining poetry, music and nature photography, this video will uplift your soul. Commissioned by Helen Fernald, NH photographer, in memory of her brother, Ohio poet Charles S. Evans (1949-2020), this moving video reminds us to live kindly and gently.

Unknown to the World’s Gaze

A flower blossoms forth
Hidden from the eye
No one saw it bloom
No one sees it die

It blossoms for itself
Unfolding to the sun
It has no need of praise
And can survive with none

And shall we bloom on vacant paths
Unknown to the world’s gaze
If together we might grow
What need we then the world’s praise

Charles S. Evans
