I have seen the sun break through…

I have seen the sun break through

to illuminate a small field

for a while, and gone my way

and forgotten it. But that was the

pearl of great price, the field that had

the treasure in it. I realise now

that I must give all that I have

to possess it. Life is not hurrying

on to the receding future, nor hankering after

an imagined past. It is the turning

aside like Moses to the miracle

of the bush, to the brightness

that seemed as transitory as your youth

once, but it is eternity that awaits you.

R.S Thomas
