For The Time Being

Today we share with you this beautiful excerpted passage from W.H. Auden's poem For The Time Being...

For The Time Beign
For the garden is the only place there is, but you will not find it
Until you have looked for it everywhere and found nowhere that is not a desert.
The miracle is the only thing that happens, but to you it will not be apparent
Until all events have been studied and nothing happens to you that you cannot explain.
Life is the destiny you are bound to refuse until you have consented to die.

- W.H. Auden
