This scarf contains a poem by Wendell Berry that has long been one of my favorites. It reminds me that no matter our challenges or how difficult a situation is, the world is still there as beautiful as ever, calling to us to find our peace.

The Peace of Wild Things Scarf

SKU: 3457762772
  • When despair for the world grows in me
    and I wake in the night at the least sound
    in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be,
    I go and lie down where the wood drake
    rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
    I come into the peace of wild things
    who do not tax their lives with forethought
    of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
    And I feel above me the day-blind stars
    waiting with their light. For a time
    I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

    --Wendell Berry
