Poetry Friday: Where Does the Dance Begin, Where Does It End? by Mary Oliver

August 12th, 2016 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Clearest Blue by Chvrches

Don't call this world adorable, or useful, that's not it.
It's frisky, and a theater for more than fair winds.
The eyelash of lightning is neither good nor evil.
The struck tree burns like a pillar of gold.

- the beginning of Where Does the Dance Begin, Where Does It End? by Mary Oliver
