Poet’s Nook: “Revelation” by Dag Hammarskjöld

delicate wing

(From Markings)


In the point of rest at the center of our being,
we encounter a world where all things are at rest in the same way.




Then a tree becomes a mystery,a cloud a revelation,
each man a cosmos of whose riches we can only catch glimpses.


The life of simplicity is simple, but it opens to us
a book in which we never get beyond the first syllable.
