DOG SONGS

Elaine Hutchison, one of our members, sent Victoria and me a copy of one of her favorite books: Dog Songs, a book of poems by Mary Oliver. Mary was a poet who won the National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize for poetry. I would like to share with you one of her poems from this book:



How it is With Us,

How it is With Them

We become religious,

then we turn from it,

then we are in need and maybe turn back.

We turn to making money,

then we turn to the moral life

then we think about money again.

We meet wonderful people,

but lose them in our busyness.

We're, as the saying goes,

all over the place.

Steadfastness, it seems,

is more about dogs than about us.

One of the reasons we love them so much.


Rev. William
