Be filled with light

My son Jay and his fiancée Rachel canceled their May wedding—and just got married on March 28. It seemed a wise decision then, and now we know it was a wise decision.

We are happy for them, and we like Rachel, who sent me a poem by one of my favorite poets one day recently. It was “When I am Among Trees” by Mary Oliver.

When I am among the trees, 

especially the willows and the honey locust,

equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,

they give off such hints of gladness.

I would almost say that they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,

in which I have goodness, and discernment,

and never hurry through the world 

but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves

and call out, “Stay awhile.”

The light flows from their branches.

And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say,

“and you too have come

into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled

with light, and to shine.”

–Joy
