POEMS: “Mysteries, Yes”

“Mysteries, Yes”

Truly, we live with mysteries too marvelous 

to be understood. 

How grass can be nourishing in the 

mouths of lambs.

How rivers and stones are forever

in allegiance with gravity.

while we ourselves dream of rising. 

How two hands touch and the bonds

will never be broken.

How people come, from delight or the 

scars of damage, 

to the comfort of a poem.

Let me keep my distance, always, from those

who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say

“Look!” and laugh in astonishment, 

and bow their heads.

Mary Oliver
