Galway Kinnell On Reteaching A Thing Its Loveliness

Posted by Gayathri Ramachandran on Sep 8, 2017
1969 reads  
"The bud
stands for all things,
even for those things that don't flower,
for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing
though sometimes it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on the brow
of the flower,
and retell it in words and in touch,
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing"

-- Galway Kinnell
