i prefer the tops of clouds

The Florentine poet Dante Alighieri wrote; ‘God is not merely a blinding vision of glorious light, but that He is, most of all, l’amor che move il sole e l’altre stelle…

::the love that moves the sun and the other stars::

{Divine Comedy}

May

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
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
