A poem by Mary Oliver

An early morning training walk with my pack on and no music. It was a small taste of the blessing I will have for 30 days next month. I’m anxious, excited and a tad nervous. Have a great day and enjoy this poem:

“Another morning and I wake with thirst for the goodness I do not have. I walk out to the pond and all the way God has given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord, I was never a quick scholar but sulked and hunched over my books past the hour and the bell; grant me, in your mercy, a little more time. Love for the earth and love for you are having such a long conversation in my heart. Who
knows what will finally happen or
where I will be sent, yet already I have
given a great many things away, expect
ing to be told to pack nothing,except the 
prayers which, with this thirst, I am slowly learning.”
