What we need is here (Wendell Berry)

   Geese appear high over us, pass, and the sky closes. 
Abandon, as in love or sleep, holds them to their way, 
clear, in the ancient faith:  what we need is here. 
And we pray, not for new earth or heaven, 
but to be quiet in heart, and in eye clear. 
What we need is here. 

--Wendell Berry, Wild Geese, excerpt
