"Now I build in the nearest pine
and each morning when I wake
it threads its needles with gold."

                            And I Was Sorrow

Thank you for these words from Olav Hauge! I love his work and can never understand why he is not more widely read.

"Don't come to me with the entire truth.
Don't bring me the ocean if I feel thirsty,
nor heaven if I ask for light;
but bring a hint, some dew, a particle,
as birds carry only drops away from water,
and the wind a grain of salt."

Hi Cate

Your right he should be more widely read. I will post another one of my favorites. Thanks for your comments. And giving me the idea.
