Quiet & Content

From the poet, Wendell Berry:

I dream of a quiet man

who explains nothing and defends

nothing, but only knows

where the rarest wildflowers

are blooming, and who goes,

and finds that he is smiling

not by his own will.

-Wendell Berry, Given (Berkeley, Counterpoint, 2005), “Sabbaths 1999,” pp. 70.
