"I Have Decided' by Mary Oliver



I have decided to find myself a home
in the mountains, somewhere high up
where one learns to live peacefully in
the cold and the silence. It's said that
in such a place certain revelations may
be discovered. That what the spirit
reaches for may be eventually felt, if not
exactly understood. Slowly, no doubt. I'm
not talking about a vacation.

Of course at the same time I mean to
stay exactly where I am.

Are you following me?


"I Have Decided" by Mary Oliver, from A Thousand Mornings, 2012.
