looking for Wendell Berry's poem in which he describes seeing a mountain lion.
the nation is a boat,2007, is written for all time, but in particular, for today. a powerful message that reminds me to hold on to the goodness of life...tightly!
I have just purchased his book of poetry. The Peace of Wild Things has been my go to poem for difficult times. I love it.
i love the writing style and grammar
.Couldn't find poem I was looking for, it really should be here, To a Siberian Woodsman - Very powerful and beautiful anti war poem
I like your style of writing as it flows smoothly like a friend's discourse, nothing imposed and not preachy. Your words are very profound yet simple, and the topics you choose are clearly from the heart and from who you are.
There are some mistakes in your version of The Peace of Wild Things, the first line you left out for the world, and 10th line is with their light, not for their light
When despair for the world 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 with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
