Hi - I'm looking for the poem at the start of 'Permaculture One' - it's called 'Three Voices' - read it recently in a bookshop, would love to read it again and maybe use as the basis for a piece of music.
If you have the book could you scan the poem or post it up? - It's a beautiful piece, can't find it anywhere else..
Thanks and greetings from Doneraile, County Cork, Ireland
You might try contacting them to see if they could give you the rest. I did find one other snippet on another website, but so far no one seems to quote the entire thing.
'Take off your cloak of dread
Take up the seed
Learning to grow is Love
Fear is the root of greed'
From the poem, 'The Three Voices' by Bill Mollison in Permaculture 'One'.

Thanks v much for your effort & suggestion! I remember coming across someone from India looking for the poem on a different forum, they made a play based on it (in Auroville I think), couple of years ago now - I might try asking there too. The net is a wonder - thanks again.
