Wendell Berry: "Traveling at Home"

                                  Even in a country you know by heart
                                  it's hard to go the same way twice.
                                  The life of the going changes.
                                  The chances change and make a new way.
                                  Any tree or stone or bird
                                  can be the bud of a new direction. The
                                  natural correction is to make intent
                                  of accident. To get back before dark
                                  is the art of going.
