| Mary Oliver - Mysteries, Yes (Fragment)

Let me keep my distance, always, from those
who think they have the answers.

Let me keep company always with those who say
"Look!" and laugh in astonishment,
and bow their heads.


-- from Evidence: Poems, by Mary Ol
Poetry Chaikhana | Mary Oliver - Mysteries, Yes
