My Help is in the Mountain - March 2014

Nancy Wood poem poster 2: My help is in the mountain

 

My Help Is in the Mountain, from Hollering Sun, 1972, by Nancy Wood

 

My help is in the mountain
Where I take myself to heal
The earthly wounds
That people give to me.
I find a rock with sun on it
And a stream where the water runs gentle
And the trees which one by one
give me company.
So must I stay for a long time
Until I have grown from the rock
And the stream is running through me
And I cannot tell myself from one tall tree.
Then I know that nothing touches me
Nor makes me run away.
My help is in the mountain
That I take away with me.
