I would like to thank the town of Harpswell for its efforts to reduce its carbon emissions. A thank you to all the people involved who helped make this possible. Also, thank you for keeping our night skies dark for all of us to enjoy!

City Folks

The folks who live in the city

Never see a star.

They look at each other in


And wonder what they are.

They never see the first star

Of the evening

To make a wish upon.

They never see the twinkling

In the heavens

From darkness until dawn.

It seems to me a pity

That they miss such

A wondrous sight.

But when you live in the city

There is never darkness in the night.

Carol Bibber, Harpswell Neck
