The most popular poet in America was born here in AD 1207.
Can you make a mirror out of straw and mud?
But sweep away mud and straw
and a mirror may be revealed!
Everything that exists is an empire of delight.
Jesus was delighted by the love of God.
His donkey was delighted by oats.
You entered this world as a nameless star
and now you ask me
“How can I find my way through the night?”
Forget your name
and let the love inside you light up the sky!
