Song of the Builders

"On a summer morning I sat down  on a hillside to think about God , a worthy pastime.
 Near me, I saw  a single cricket;  it was moving the grains of the hillside  this way and that way.
 How great was its energy,  how humble its effort.
 Let us hope  it will always be like this,  each of us going on  in our inexplicable ways  building the universe."

-  Mary Oliver, "Song of the Builders"
