A Poem about Design

I just had a planning meeting with some youth and some others interested in supporting the design and build of the artlot. I started the meeting the beautiful Mary Oliver Poem below. I found it to encapsulate my intentions for the fellowship perfectly by highlighting the power of design, and being a part of something larger. It also has a beautiful balance of stillness and work.

This activity was suggested by a facilitator of the retreat last weekend as a way to opening deeper conversations, and it seemed to be received well by the youth.  I want to ask if anyone has any ideas for other poems. It can be about sacred space, creativity, building, home, community, etc.
