1 The 2014 Sophia Lyon Fahs Lecture

2 TO A LITTLE DRY PEANUT Little dry peanut! I throw you to the squirrels. They hide you among the tree roots. They crush you between their teeth. They think you are just a little dry peanut Made for them to eat. Little dry peanut! Your wonder is hiding within you. The earth as a godess (sic) wrapt (sic) you carefully round. You sleep a long sleep – like unto dying -- Alone in the dark And you knew it not.

3 The days and the nights in order passed by you - Till you found at last the power within you You reached your soft arms toward the sun. You changed your green stems into flowers. You mothered e'en small baby peanuts. Down in your crib of earth. Then on a day - did you know Little dry peanut Workers came kneeling as beggars Asking your lives for their lives. Wage earners gather by your miracles To sell in our markets

4 Little dry peanut! Wrapt (sic) in yourself made blanket! Some of your secrets are out! I know you - tiny wee worker of wonders! Gatherer of treasures! Guardian of riches! Little dry peanut! You get me wondering - Till I feel I must pray. Sophia Lyon Fahs
