Nodding Silently

From Wendell Berry’s “Sabbaths 2000, II” in Given: Poems.

When we convene again
to understand the world,
the first speaker will again
point silently out the window
at the hillside in its season,
sunlit, under the snow,
and we will nod silently,
and silently stand and go.

    Wow. I am a big Berry fan but didn’t know this. Beautiful.
