Poetry Wednesday, No. 2

Ahh, nothing the destruction of a hard drive to keep one from blogging for a while!  While my old data may forever be lost, at least my machine is repaired, up and running.  While I ponder deep thoughts, here is a poem by Gary Snyder for your enjoyment:

How Poetry Comes To Me

It comes blundering over the

Boulders at night.  It stays

Frightened outside the

Range of my campfire

I go to meet it at the

Edge of the light

— from No Nature: New and Selected Poems, 1992
