You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.

Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting -
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things. -Mary Oliver, Wild Geese
