Amo Ergo Sum

0207_Amo Ergo Sum

Because I love
There is an invisible way across the sky,
Birds travel by that way, the sun and moon
And all the stars travel that path by night.

Because I love
There is a river flowing all night long.

Because I love
All night the river flows into my sleep,
Ten thousand living things are sleeping in my arms,
And sleeping wake, and flowing are at rest.

Excerpt from ‘Amo Ergo Sum’ 
by British poet, Kathleen Raine, (1908 – 2003)

  1. i cannot tell you how much comfort i find in the believing in the “invisible way across the sky,” and in the being reminded that birds and stars and sun and moon travel that way each and every day, since the dawn of creation…..
