The Peace of Wild Things : And Other Poems Paperback / softback


I come into the peace of wild thingswho do not tax their lives with forethoughtof grief.

I come into the presence of still water. And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light.

For a timeI rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

The poems of Wendell Berry invite us to stop, to think, to see the world around us, and to savour what is good.

Here are consoling verses of hope and of healing; short, simple meditations on love, death, friendship, memory and belonging; luminous hymns to the land, the cycles of nature and the seasons as they ebb and flow.

Here is the peace of wild things.
