Some Things the World Gave:

1. Times in the morning early
when it rained and the long gray
buildings came forward from darkness offering their windows for light.

2. Evenings out there on the plains
when sunset donated farms that yearned so far to the west that the world centered there and bowed down.

3. A teacher at a country school walking home past a great marsh where ducks came gliding in -- she saw the boy out hunting and waved.

4. Silence on a hill where the path ended and then the forest below moving in one long whisper as evening touched the leaves.

~ Mary Oliver
