It requires great love of it deeply to read
The configuration of a land,
Gradually grow conscious of fine shadings,
Of great meanings in slight symbols,
Hear at last the great voice that speaks softly,
See the swell and fall upon the flank
Of a statue carved out in a whole country's marble,
Be like Spring, like a hand in a window
Moving New and Old things carefully to and fro,
Moving a fraction of flower here,
Placing an inch of air there,

What a beautiful write about loving parts of a nation or indeed a world and by loving them weave them into our own identity. Definitely could also be said about loving another person, or art, or God.

'All the loose ends of Scotland, And by naming them and accepting them, Loving them and identifying myself with them, Attempt to express the whole.' -wonderful poem reminding me the Fairbairn's theory of self. The purity of self is changed during life because of all the experiences people have while being involved in relationships. It is so hard to evolve without communication, but the ascetic people can do this. This way, it is revealed the great power of God.
