enormous comfort calm at heart, calm moral depth
and calm and joyful and just as calm
and his eye a little severe, and calm in tone and manner
and a calm and lovely sitting, and a sweet, calm smile
calm and comfort me, calm and comfort the tears away
calm in paradox, this great beast,
underneath shim holding calm and sure
calm lonesome, calm after the hunt but then it turns
calm to restless, a calm and lovely sitting
calm his nerves and cool, calm water so near,
a calm trust in calm weather and a calm calm day

and the calm at the end
of the pond already calm and full
of hope as in a calm calm summer day

Subject: Burned Alive - Help Stop BP from Torching Endangered Sea Turtles

                       Center for Biological Diversity

Dear Alan,


Reports keep coming in from locals in the Gulf and stories on NPR and in The
New York Times -- endangered sea turtles are being burned alive as part of
BP's careless oil spill cleanup efforts.

This is unacceptable. These rare, important turtles are becoming trapped in
the oily surface of the Gulf and then torched by cleanup crews in
"controlled burns" of corralled oil -- any wildlife caught inside the corral
are literally burned alive.

And it's illegal: As protected species under the Endangered Species Act,
anyone responsible for killing a Kemp's Ridley sea turtle -- the turtle most
affected by the Gulf oil disaster -- is liable for criminal penalties
including prison time and civil fines of up to $25,000 for each violation.

Take action right now and send this to all your friends. Tell BP to stop
torching endangered sea turtles. The turtles should not be burned alive in
the process of cleaning up the oil spill that's already destroying their
habitat. We can stop it and get the turtles out of harm's way with your

BP: Stop blocking the rescue of endangered sea turtles before you burn them
alive in your surface oil "controlled burn" cleanup operations. You have a
responsibility to protect these rare, important turtles and it is illegal
under the Endangered Species Act to kill these imperiled species.
