The Trees Do Sing
Bare branches against the stars, and other moments of beauty.
Even the rocks will cry out!
"Nothing vast enters the lives of mortals without ruin
But of course there is hope look here comes hope
to tickle your feet
Then you notice the soles are on fire”
"[W]e are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.""-
from Antigonick, a translation of Sophokles by Anne Carson
