A Homecoming


One Faith is bondage.  Two

are free.  In the trust

of old love, cultivation shows

a dark and graceful wilderness

at its heart.  Wild

in that wilderness, we roam

the distance of our faith;

safe beyond the bounds

of what we know.  O love

open.  Show me

my country.  Take me home . 


                                                                                                 WENDELL BERRY
