So another year has come and gone...
"Let this time be. Let the present stay. Do not
Look back. Do not look forward. Let thought
Idle from dream into daylight, and watch,then, the coast
Climb out to dark, to grey, and then to chalk-white
Cliffs till the grey sea goes blue
And then indeed you
Are found and safe at last
And all your thought will grow
And you will unreel it, a silk-thread, a long-
Travelling, moving-everywhere line
And it will gradually, as you relax. it, become a song
And you will not say 'That is mine'."
From The Way of Words and Language by Elizabeth Jennings
