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.

    Beautiful poem full of feeling. I have a BA in English, loved novels, short stories, poetry never really gripped my heart, but I love this poem heard Alan Alda recite it in the TV series ER, beautifully rendered by Alan. (Report) Reply
