Suppose we did our work
like the snow, quietly, quietly,
leaving nothing out.
Lovely, isn't it? I've never read Wendell Berry before. I was pleased to see how attuned I am to his work. Part of it may be the South he writes about and is influenced by as well as the bucolic nature of his attentions. Another factor is that he thinks Kentucky but always with a cosmic and human perspective rather than concerning himself with the social or political thing Kentucky is. These poems are about man's place in nature and how that creates a character of the sacred. These are meditative pieces. In fact, I understand those from the section entitled "Sabbaths 2005-2008" are inspired by Sunday walks. I imagine he casts his seeing into the landscapes as he walks, reeling in thoughts on how relatively small sightings reflect the larger world while at the same time clarifying the even larger interior of the man. To walk with Berry is to walk in a sweeping yet embraced mental landscape.
