"The Peace of Wild Things", by Wendell Berry

When despair for the world grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel abgove me the day-blind stars
waiting with their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Graveside funeral services will be Friday, June 23, 2017, at 9:00AM at Arlington National Cemetery. For those attending the graveside service, please arrive at the cemetery by 8:30AM.
