The Peace of Wild Things

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.

— Wendell Berry
