Donald Hall On The Poem

It discovers by nightwhat the day hid from it.Sometimes it turns itselfinto an animal.In summer it takes long walksby itself where meadowsfold back from ditches.Once it stood stillin a quiet row of machines.Who knowswhat it is thinking? 🌹Donald Andrew Hall (September 20, 1928 – June 23, 2018) In Memoriam🌹

Rebecca Solnit On Hope

Hope is a gift you don’t have to surrender, a power you don’t have to throw away, and though hope can be an act of defiance, defiance isn’t enough reason to hope.🎂Happy Birthday Rebecca Solnit (June 24, 1961 -)🎂
