A simple poem, at least it appears so until you begin to think about it.
I Have Decided Mary Oliver
I have decided to find myself a home
in the mountains, somewhere high up
were one learns to live peacefully in
the cold and the silence. It’s said that
in such a place certain revelations may
be discovered. That what the spirit
reaches for may be eventually felt, if
not exactly understood. Slowly, no
doubt. I’m not talking about a vacation.
Of course at the same time I mean
to stay exactly where I am.
