A Labour Day Weekend Reflection

A Labour Day Weekend Reflection

Song of the Builders 

On a summer morning
I sat down
on a hillside
to think about God - 

a worthy pastime.
Near me, I saw
a single cricket;
it was moving the grains of the hillside 

this way and that way.
How great was its energy,
how humble its effort.
Let us hope 

it will always be like this,
each of us going on
in our inexplicable ways
building the universe. 

~ Mary Oliver ~
