Working on reclaiming the wild spaces,
Rewilding these humanly-altered places,
which remind us of our human wildness
And how we remain wild on the inside.
When the world wants to rewild the altered places
And return them to their wild nature,
We think we have to do something –
But we rewild by leaving the wild well alone.
Pasture turns to thicket when the sheep have gone
Thicket seeds forests when the people leave
Nature rewilds itself
