In “White Heron Rises over Blackwater”

Mary Oliver wonders
what it is
     that I will accomplish
     today

On that today for me
I write a letter to the editor

read Philip Booth and hope
he is with me in all my work.

I wash the sheets. The clean
bed awaits the quiet of night.

Holy. Holy. Holy.
