A Poem for Sunday (or Any Day)


I tremble with gratitude
for my children and their children
who take pleasure in one another.

At our dinner together, the dead
enter and pass among us
in living love and in memory.

And so the young are taught



by Wendell Berry

  5. What a poem! I can so identify -- but I would never be able to word it so eloquently.

  6. I'm glad all of you enjoyed this poem. I suppose it rings truer with family historians/genealogists than people not interested in family members who have passed away.
