Wendell Berry - Woods

I part the out thrusting branches
and come in beneath
the blessed and the blessing trees.
Though I am silent
there is singing around me.
Though I am dark
there is vision around me.
Though I am heavy
there is flight around me.

I found serenity in reading this...

This is beautiful poem! I want to share it with the immediate family of my cousin. He found some similarities in the plight of the American Chestnut and related it to his medical condition. SPD
