 the peace of wild things
wendell berry

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
rest in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
i come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax heir 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.

welcome to coffee hour.
welcome to this Sunday morning.
just BE.
