Earth Day 2020 from Shirley

Here is a beautiful, deeply stirring poem by James Agee, American novelist, journalist, poet, screenwriter and film critic. His autobiographical novel, A Death in the Family, won the author a posthumous 1958 Pulitzer Prize.  I had never read this or the author, and thank the resident for the introduction.  I hope you enjoy it as well.

Sure on this shining night

James Agee

Sure on this shining night

Of starmade shadows round,

Kindness must watch for me

This side the ground.

The late year lies down the north.

All is healed, all is health.

High summer holds the earth.

Hearts are whole.

Sure on this shining night

I weep for wonder

Wandering far alone

Of shadows on the stars.
