Resting Place

I came upon a resting place;

a reading place, a writing place,

a summer’s breeze in the evening place,

but there I could not stay.

So I came upon the place again –

a breathing place, a healing place.

I came upon the place again

on a very different day,

so when I

came upon the resting place,

the reading place, the writing place,

the summer’s breeze in the evening place

the breathing place, the healing place –

when I came across that place again

I knew that I could stay.
