Happy Birthday, Berry.

Shishkin, Birch Grove, 1886


Wendell Berry was born on this date in 1934.

Woods

I part the out thrusting branches
and come in beneath
the blessed and the blessing trees.
Though I am silent
there is singing around me.
Though I am dark
there is vision around me.
Though I am heavy
there is flight around me.


- Wendell Berry
