Mysteries yes: look with astonishment

24 Apr 2022 | Holy Spirit | 0 comments

Truly we live with mysteries too marvellous

              to be understood….

Let me keep my distance, always, from those

              who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say

              ‘Look!’ and laugh in astonishment,

              and bow their heads.


Mary Oliver (1935-2019), Evidence, 2009.
