Love This Miraculous World



Our understandable wish

to preserve the planet

must somehow be

reduced

to the scale of our competence.


Love is never abstract.

It does not adhere

to the universe

or the planet

or the nation

or the institution

or the profession



but to the singular

sparrows of the street,

the lilies of the field,

"the least of these

my brethren."


Love this

miraculous world

that we did not make,

that is a gift to us.



-- Wendell berry
