"What is it you plan to do with your one wild & precious life?"

Coco's Lost Toy                    7/27/11                       Jean Stimmell  ©2011 
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
