starting wth little things


Start with little things.

Love the earth like a mole,
fur-near. Nearsighted,

hold close the clods,

their fine-print headlines.

Pat them with soft hands --

Like spades, but pink and loving; they

break rock, nudge giants aside,

affable plow.

Fields are to touch;

each day nuzzle your way.

Tomorrow the world.

–William Stafford
The Way It Is
