Friday afternoon meme: look to the left of your computer screen. What's the first thing you see?

This is the first thing I see (I'm in my office in the Art department). It's taped on the wall beside the computer, (a) because it's beautiful, and (b) because I need to hear this pretty often. By the contemporary American poet Wendell Berry:


What We Need is Here


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.
