Acorns

Found your hope,

then, on the

ground under your

feet.

Your hope of

Heaven, let it

rest on the

ground

underfoot. Be it

lighted by the

light that falls

freely upon it

after the

darkness of the

nights

and the darkness

of our ignorance

and madness. Let it be lighted

also by the light

that is within

you,

which is the

light of

imagination….(Wendell Berry, This Day)
