Thirty-six is helping to restore
Habitats hit hard by civilization.
In wilderness there is exquisite art,
Relegating humans to a part
That humbles the reclaimed imagination,
Yet whets an avid appetite for more.

So do we glimpse the glory of creation,
Insignificant enough for awe,
Xerophytes who'd quench a thirsty heart.
