I recently came across this poem/benediction by David Miley, another UU Druid blogger; I am reposting it here with permission (thanks, David!). May it move you as much as it has moved me.

There is a Sound

There is a Sound,
That supports the World.

It is tree dance
And brook babbling.
It is summer storm and volcano.
It is in us and apart.
As loud as sleigh bells –
Still, you may not hear it.

Touch tree.
Face fear.
Light fire.
Dance in moonlight.
Make love.

The Sound is silent
Until you sing it.

  1. Feral Boy

    We are the change we bring to the world.

    The Company Who Shall Remain Nameless had it right —
    “Just Do It”. Marketing tool and good advice.

    “For all sad words of tongue and pen,
    The saddest are these, ‘It might have been’.”

    — John Greenleaf Whittier
