Quote of the Week ~ Lines from Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry, A Timbered Choir (Sabbath Poems)

His perfect pleasure was sole law;
No pleasure had become self-willed.

For all His creatures were His pleasures
And their whole pleasure was to be
What he made them; they sought no gain
Or growth beyond their proper measures,
Nor longed for change or novelty.
The only new thing could be pain.
