A New Voice

2 Rainbows, dreamy

But little by little,
as you left their voices behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do — 
determined to save
the only life you could save.

— Mary Oliver

    This is beautiful, and makes me smile! The morning paper, for some reason, doesn’t always do that!!
