"I am Content" by John Burroughs
Sometimes we come across a poem or quote that says the things we are feeling so much better than we can, such as this gem by John Burroughs. It seems so appropriate for this gorgeous time of year! Enjoy~
"The longer I live the more my mind dwells upon the beauty and wonder of the world. . . . .
I have tilled its soil, I have gathered its harvests, I have waited upon its seasons, and always have I reaped what I have sown.
While I delved I did not lose sight of the sky overhead. While I gathered its bread and meat for my body, I did not neglect to gather its bread and meat for my soul.
I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings."
Love and blessings,
