“True wildness is a love of nature, a delight in silence, a voice free to say spontaneous things, and an exuberant curiosity in the face of the unknown.” – Robert Bly
Born in Minnesota in 1926, Bly was a poet, essayist and activist and winner of The National Book Award for Poetry for The Light Around the Body.
For Saturday’s Poem, here is Bly’s,
Solitude Late at Night in the Wood
It is a joy to walk in the bare
The moonlight is not broken by the heavy leaves.
The leaves are down, and touching the soaked earth,
Giving off the odors that partridges love."
