Heaven enough for me
would be this world as I know it, but redeemed
of our abuse of it and one another.

Traveling on Grace Street... - O saints, if I am even eligible for this prayer

That is one great line I'd say and I so agree with his ideas on heaven and earth. Here is another Berry poem that speaks to me:

There is no going back
by Wendell Berry

No, no, there is no going back.
Less and less you are
that possibility you were.
More and more you have become
those lives and deaths
that have belonged to you.

You have become a sort of grave
containing much that was
and is no more in time, beloved
then, now, and always.
And so you have become a sort of tree
standing over a grave.

Now more than ever you can be
generous toward each day
that comes, young, to disappear
forever, and yet remain
unaging in the mind.

Every day you have less reason
not to give yourself away.
