Saturday Stanzas: Musical Notation 1

Excerpt From Musical Notation: 1

Mary Oliver

The physicality of the religious poets should not
be taken idly. He or she, who loves god, will
look most deeply into His works. Clouds are not
only vapor, but shape, mobility, silky sacks of
nourishing rain. The pear orchard is not only
profit, but a paradise of light. The luna moth,
who lives but a few days, sometimes only a few
hours, has a pale green wing whose rim is like a
musical notation. Have you noticed?
