All I Cannot Save, Adrienne Rich

Posted December 30, 2010 in Opening and Closing Readings. Tagged: , ,

My heart is moved by all I cannot save
So much has been destroyed
I have to cast my lot with those, who, age after age,
Perversely, with no extraordinary
Power, reconstitute the world.

Excerpt fromĀ Natural Resources inĀ The Dream of a Common Language, (Norton, 1978), p. 67.
