Musical Notation: 2

© Colleen Hilman
Everything is His.
The door, the door jamb.
The wood stacked near the door.
The leaves blown upon the path
   that leads to the door.
The trees that are dropping their leaves
   the wind that is tripping them this way and that way,
the clouds that are high above them,
the stars that are sleeping now beyond the clouds

and, simply said, all the rest.

When I open the door I am so sure so sure
   all this will be there, and it is.
I look around.
I fill my arms with the firewood.
I turn and enter His house, and close His door.

Mary Oliver - from Thirst
