re-enchantment

A Poem

a question of seeing
in and out of the garden
the re-enchantment of everyday life
down in the garden
bird by bird
red oaks and black birches
wide meadows
a walk in the woods

the education of the heart
the gift of peace

  1. I think this is not only beautiful, but also clever! The stack of book titles is a wonderful metaphor for what writing can bring to us, as summed up in the last couplet. I’m off to look up some these titles, and also to read some messages from my own bookcase ….. 🙂

  2. This is so peaceful and well done… Meditative, really. I think you and I might be friends if we lived close together.
