Acceptance pt 2

Thank you to Hannah Ingram who found the missing Hirschfield poem!

An excerpt from: Between the Material World and the World of Feeling
But I long for the calm acceptance of a bentwood chair and envy the
                    blue-green curve of a vase’s shoulder, which holds whatever is placed
                    within it—the living flower or the dead—with an equally tender balance,
                    and knows no difference between them.
                    —Jane Hirshfield, from After: Poems (Harper Perennial, 2006)
