The Poet: Wendell Berry, "A Warning To My Readers"

"A Warning To My Readers"

"Do not think me gentle
because I speak in praise
of gentleness, or elegant
because I honor the grace
that keeps this world. I am
a man crude as any,
gross of speech, intolerant,
stubborn, angry, full
of fits and furies. That I 
may have spoken well
at times, is not natural.
A wonder is what it is."

- Wendell Berry
