AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Where.


Now has come, an easy time. I let it
roll. There is a lake somewhere
so blue and far nobody owns it.
A wind comes by, and a willow listens
gracefully.

I hear all this, every summer. I laugh
and cry for every turn of the world,
its terribly cold, innocent spin.
That lake stays blue and free; it goes
on and on.  

And I know where it is.

William Stafford
