I Have Decided

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.
