As Long As We Both Shall Live

As Long As We Both Shall Live

June 17, 1978


Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart,

Suddenly you flare in my sight
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only shade,

and once again I am blessed, choosing
again what I chose before.
   ~ Wendell Berry, The Wild Rose
