three ways i dream for your return

A Mouse and a Frog Near a Pond Jalal al-Din Rumi, Maulana (Author) PERIOD 1073 AH/AD 1663

Beans Green and Yellow

From Swan: Poems and Prose Poems

By Mary Oliver 
In fall

it is mushrooms

gathered in dampness
under the pines;
in spring
I have known the taste of the lamb
full of milk
and spring grass;
it is beans green and yellow
and lettuce and basil
from my friend’s garden –
how calmly,
as though it were an ordinary thing,
we eat the blessed earth.

Hieronymus Bosch - detail from The Garden of Earthly Delights
