The Peace of Wild Things

When despair of 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.
-Wendell Berry
