wild sweet words to set your Heart A
hoever you are -
some evening take a step
out of your house
which you know so well
Enormous space is near -
your house lies where it begins
our eyes find it hard to tear themselves
from the sloping threshold, but with your eyes
slowly, slowly, lift one black tree
up, so it stands against the sky:
With that you have made the world
he world is immense
and like a word that is still growing in the silence
n the same moment that your will grasps it
feeling its subtlety, will leave it. . . .
