Contents: I go among trees and sit still --
Another Sunday morning comes --
To sit and look at light-filled leaves --
The bell calls in the town --
How many have relinquished --
What stood will stand, though all be fallen --
What if, in the high, restful sanctuary --
I go from the woods into the cleared field --
Enclosing the field within bounds --
Whatever is foreseen in joy --
To long for what can be fulfilled in time --
To long for what eternity fulfills --
What hard travail God does in death --
The eager dog lies strange and still --
Great deathly powers have passed --
The frog with lichened back and golden thigh --
Six days of work are spent --
The intellect so ravenous to know --
Here where the world is being made --
Dream ended, I went out, awake
Responsibility: Wendell Berry.
