are giving off the rich fragrance of cinnamon and fulfillment,
and every pond, no matter what its name is, is nameless now.
Every year everything I have ever learned in my lifetime leads back to this:
whose meaning none of us will ever know.
To live in this world you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go."
- Mary Oliver
