"In them
the ground is wise. They are
its remembrance of what it is."

The Wild
                        Wendell Berry

The Bath

"So birds of peace and hope and love
Come fluttering earthward from above,
To settle on life's window-sills,
And ease our load of earthly ills;
But we, in traffic's rush and din
Too deep engaged to let them in,
With deadened heart and sense plod on,
Nor know our loss till they are gone."

                                The Sparrow
                                                                Paul Laurence Dunbar
