I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief. I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light. For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free. The poems of Wendell Berry invite us to stop, to think, to see the world around us, and to savour what is good. Here are consoling verses of hope and of healing; short, simple meditations on love, death, friendship, memory and belonging; luminous hymns to the land, the cycles of nature and the seasons as they ebb and flow. Here is the peace of wild things.

Review:
Wendell Berry is the most important writer and thinker that you have (probably) never heard of. He is an American sage -- James Rebanks Our modern-day Thoreau ... He is unlike anybody else writing today -- Andrew Marr * New Statesman * The poet laureate of America's farmland * Observer * Wendell Berry's poems have a real twinkle in their eye in the face of a dark world -- Colum McCann * Atlantic * He has returned American poetry to a Wordsworthian clarity of purpose * Baltimore Sun *

Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. Joyous, sensuous, radical- a slim volume of Wendell Berry's best-loved poems to console and delightIf you stop and look around you, you'll start to see.Tall marigolds darkening. A spring wind blowing. The woods awake with sound. On the wooden porch, your love smiling. Dew-wet red berries in a cup. On the hills, the beginnings of green, clover and grass to be pasture. The fowls singing and then settling for the night. Bright, silent, thousands of stars.You come into the peace of simple things.From the author of the 'compelling' and 'luminous' essays of The World-Ending Fire comes a slim volume of poems. Tender and intimate, these are consoling songs of hope and of healing; short, simple meditations on love, death, friendship, memory and belonging. They celebrate and elevate what is sensuous about life, and invite us to pause and appreciate what is good in life, to stop and savour our fleeting moments of earthly enjoyment. And, when fear for the future keeps us awake at night, to come into the peace of wild things. Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
