Rest in the Grace of the World

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water,
and the great heron feeds.

I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with
forethought of grief.
I come into the presence of still water and
I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light.

For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

—Wendell Berry
