now






.
Young
We had not enough respect for the changing moon.
Then the days seemed to pass only to return again.
.
Now
Having learned by loss that men’s days part from them forever,
We eat and drink together beneath the full moon
Acknowledging and celebrating the power that bereft us
And yet sheds over the earth a light that is beautiful.
.

~ Wendell Berry
after the Painting and Poem by Shen Chou
