Abstract:

In Primary Wonder, she writes: "And then / once more the quiet mystery / is present to me, the throng's clamor / recedes: the mystery / that there is anything, anything at all, / let alone cosmos, joy, memory, everything, / rather than void: and that O Lord, / Creator, Hallowed One, You still, / hour by hour sustain it."
