Words To Say Love


We don't have enough words to say "love,"
that is why we have hands.
We don't have enough deeds to do love,
that is why we have tears.
We don't have enough tears to feel love,
so we have silence.
We don't have enough wonder to contain love,
so we surrender.
Now the soft morning rain is over.
  A tiny broken sun trembles
on the tip of every fern.

The vireo returns to heal the earth
with a song.
