Poem for a Sunday Morning

Exploring
{Wendell Berry}

Always in the deep wood when you leave
Familiar ground and step off alone into a
New place there will be, along with feelings
Of curiosity and excitement, a little nagging
Of dread.  It is an ancient fear of the unknown
And it is your first bond with the wilderness
You are going into.

What you are doing is exploring.
