"What is it you plan to do with your one wild & precious life?"
The poet, Mary Oliver, asks:
"What is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?"
Then she answers:
"You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves." – Mary Oliver
