SHORT POEMS: “What we need is here” by Wendell Berry


“What we need is here” 

Geese appear high over us

pass, and the sky closes. Abandon,

as in love or sleep, holds

them to their way, clear

in the ancient faith: what we need

is here. And we pray, not

for new earth or heaven, but to be

quiet in heart, and in eye,

clear. What we need is here.


~ Wendell Berry

  1. True what we need is all here. There is nothing once we drop our bodies. So let us enjoy our days here. Lovely poem, Amira.
