Thirst

by Mary Oliver

 

Another morning and I wake with thirst

for the goodness I do not have. I walk

out to the pond and all the way God has given us such beautiful lessons. Oh Lord,

I was never a quick scholar but sulked

and hunched over my books past the

hour and the bell; grant me, in your

mercy, a little more time. Love for the

earth and love for you are having such a

long conversation in my heart. Who

knows what will finally happen or

where I will be sent, yet already I have

given a great many things away, expect-

ing to be told to pack nothing, except the prayers which, with this thirst, I am

slowly learning.
