The Peace Of Wild Things - Poem by Wendell Berry

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

    Compact and elegant, this poem reminds me of the important images of life. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting for their light is especially haunting and elegiac. These lines are worthy of the great Romantic poets, whom I rank as Berry's forerunners and peers. (Report) Reply
