Read full description of the books A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems 1979-1997:I don't always "get" poetry, but many of these spoke to me. Here is one that I read over and over again:
Whatever is foreseen in joy
Must be lived out from day to day.
Vision held open in the dark
By our ten thousand days of work.
Harvest will fill the barn; for that
The hand must ache, the face must sweat.
And yet no leaf or grain is filled
By work of ours; the field is tilled
And left to grace. That we may reap,
Great work is done while we're asleep.
When we work well, a Sabbath mood
Rests on our day, and calls it good.
And this one still runs through my head periodically:
Best of any song
is bird song
in the quiet, but first
you must have the quiet.
Reading these poems is like taking a deep cleansing breath.
