„How small life is here
and how big nothingness.
The sky, tired of light,
has given everything to the snow.

The two trees bow
their heads to each other.
Clouds cross the world’s
silence in a circle dance“

„I stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything — other people, trees, clouds.“

—  Mary Oliver American writer 1935 - 2019

"Staying Alive"
Blue Pastures (1995)
Контексте: I stood willingly and gladly in the characters of everything — other people, trees, clouds. And this is what I learned, that the world's otherness is antidote to confusion — that standing within this otherness — the beauty and the mystery of the world, out in the fields or deep inside books — can re-dignify the worst-stung heart.

„Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how?“

—  Theodore Roethke, The Waking

Контексте: 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.
