to love what is mortal, hold it, then let it go..

February 28, 2012 § 2 Comments

“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
