Wild is the way
WHO THE HELL CAN SEE FOREVER?
Confíteor Deo omnipoténti
et vobis, fratres,
quia peccávi nimis
ópere et omissióne.
Wild is the way and clear is the sky
A world of smell and sight and sound
The portals of discovery all around.
So enter our world, our newfoundland:
The sheer vividness of colour will astound
You. The all-round visibility of sound,
Flesh and blood and all the part-created
Part-perceived epiphanies of cloud and sky and sun
Enter the mind and fly so high to delight the inner-eye.
See the kippering, stippling clouds come rushing by.
Grasp these perceptions, cling to the day,
Instress this texture, and wild is the way.
