From “Quiet Evening”

From “Quiet Evening”

More than anything in the world
I love these evenings when we’re together,
the quiet evenings in summer, the sky still light at this hour.

So Penelope took the hand of Odysseus,
not to hold him back but to impress
this peace on his memory:

from this point on, the silence through which you move
is my voice pursuing you.

– Louise Glück

 

i’ve been looking for this and feel so much better now.
