B's Gift to Me

Sister B sent me this link today.  She said she heard it and thought of me :)  I'd never heard this poem by James Agee, but I loved it instantly.  Please enjoy B's gift to me...

Sure On This Shining Night
Sure on this shining night
Of star made shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night I weep for wonder wand'ring far alone
Of shadows on the stars.
-- James Agee
