A Winter Day At My Favorite Beach


"Every day I see or hear something that more or less kills me with delight,

that leaves me like a needle in the haystack of light.

It was what I was born for - to look, to listen, to lose myself
inside this soft world -

to instruct myself over and over in joy, and acclamation.

Nor am I talking about the exceptional, the fearful, the dreadful, the very

but of the ordinary,
the common,
the very drab,
the daily presentations.

A group of children were having an art lesson.

Oh, good scholar,
I say to myself,
how can you help but grow wise with such
teachings as these-

the untrimmable light of the world,
the oceans shine

the prayers that are made out of grass?" -Mary Oliver
