There is wind where the rose was,
Cold rain where sweet grass was,
And clouds like sheep
Stream o'er the steep
Grey skies where the lark was.

Nought warm where your hand was,
Nought gold where your hair was,
But phantom, forlorn,
Beneath the thorn,
Your ghost where your face was.

Cold wind where your voice was,
Tears, tears where my heart was,
And ever with me,
Child, ever with me,
Silence where hope was.

    Hi @NatashaT , Is an interesting field to discover especially for new generations are starting with their studies carriers ... experts about the “green world”are required and will be surely always more required in the future ....
    For me would be difficult at now to start working in this field because this would say to re qualify myself ... but I think is the right direction to take...
    Just I’m asking me since a few, which will be the distribution companies revenues If in the future all the technology will push in the auto sustainable direction with houses and cities entirely moved for instance with the sun energy...
    Maybe also the Sun will become private in the future ?
