Said the river: imagine everything you can imagine, then keep on going.
Imagine how the lily (who may also be a part of God)
would sing to you if it could sing, if
you would pause to hear it.
And how are you so certain anyway that it doesn’t sing?
—Mary Oliver, from section 2 of “At the River Clarion” in Evidence (Beacon Press, 2009)
