processing: The Wild Rose- Wendell Berry

The Wild Rose
(written by Wendell Berry for his wife)

Sometimes hidden from me
in daily custom and in trust,
so that I live by you unaware
as by the beating of my heart.

Suddenly you flare in my sight,
a wild rose blooming at the edge
of thicket, grace and light
where yesterday was only shade,

and once again I am blessed,
choosing again
what I chose before.
