Famous Poem #2

by Joseph Harker

Another poem that may be helpful for showing the feel we’re looking for. Once again: no copyright infringement intended. (I feel like this statement maybe is not necessary to write every single time, but better to have it than not.)

Song of the Builders
(Mary Oliver)

On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God –

a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside

this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope

it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe.
