"Accept what comes from silence.
Make the best you can of it.
Of the little words that come
out of the silence, like prayers
prayed back to the one who prays,
make a poem that does not disturb
the silence from which it came."

How To Be a Poet
            Wendell Berry

Hi Kathie

I am always impressed with Berry, that one author can write such great novels, short stories, essays and then follow them with such an impressive body of poetry amazes me.

All the best.
