Non-Doggy Reading

I don't know if years from now, people will read Wendell Berry or dismiss him as a minor primitive. I think he's more than that. Here's a couple of stanzas from one of his Sabbath poems:


        Ask the world to reveal its quietude --
        not the silence of machines when they are still,
        but the true quiet by which birdsongs,
        trees, bellworts, snails, clouds, storms
        become what they are, and are nothing else.


        Sit and be still
        until in the time
        of no rain you hear
        beneath the dry wind's
        commotion in the trees
        the sound of flowing
        water among the rocks,
        a stream unheard before,
        and you are where
        breathing is prayer.
