One Green Deed Review Poem
By David E. Manly, Professor Emeritus, SUNY Geneseo
I've just read a review of an awesome new tome
that, in so many ways, really "hit home"
not just with its subject , the environment,
but also the author known in my retirement.
David Mahood and his brother, Bruce,
grew up in the region of the Big Tree Spruce
in Geneseo, New York, a college town
revered for its reputation with cap and gown.
He was born son of scholarly, loving parents
from whom he received his genetic inheritance.
and, obviously, too, his skill in writing
which at an early age he found inviting.
And now he has published a distinguished volume
on a timely subject that's meaningfully solemn,
presented with clarity and true literary style
that sustains reader interest all of the while.
He speaks with eloquence of our earth's maintainability
which we must instill with sustainability.
He cites experts on all facets of our world
and from his efforts, a new challenge is unfurled.
Titled, "One Green Deed Spawns Another"
He touches the conscience of every sister and brother.
Thus, it's a book well worth reading
and, of course, its core message heeding.
