Peace of the Wild Things | It

Peace of the Wild Things

by Wendell Berry

When my 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 might 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 the wild things

who do not tax their lives with forethought

of grief. I come into the presence of the 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.
