Gifts of Life

Front porch


R.S. Thomas

Some ask the world

and are diminished

in the receiving

of it. You gave me

only this small pool

that the more I drink

from, the more overflows

me with sourceless light.

(From Risking Everything: 110 Poems of Love and Revelation, 2003, Edited by Roger Housden)
