The Waking

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I cannot go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree, but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

--Theodore Roethke

Mighty White of Her

I just heard on MSNBC that Hillary is planning to endorse Obama Friday, which was the last date the DNC gave her to do it. I hope she actually concedes and asks her supporters to vote for him and work for his election. Her arrogance knows no bounds! She's just as divisive and stubborn as George W. Bush, and that's saying something! She's getting on all my nerves right now.

She's suspending her campaign Friday. Oh, really? Does she think she's still a candidate? As I told someone when I was dating a black guy and she said she still liked me anyway, "That's mighty white of you." It's a black expression here in the South if you haven't heard it and fits here with Hillary in this situation.

Apparently, somehow she seems to feel justified and entitled. Unbelievable, isn't it? Here she is getting all this attention when other candidates exited gracefully and elegantly. Gracious people with manners know when to leave. IT'S HIS DAY!
