The warmth has come

The song of Heaven's Sabbath fleshed
In throat and ear, in stream and stone,
A grace living here as we live,
Move my mind now to that which holds
Things as they change.

The warmth has come.

The doors have opened. Flower and song
Embroider ground and air, lead me
Beside the healing field that waits;

from A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems 1979 - 1997
by Wendell Berry
