The Peace of Wild Things is a beautiful, moving poem written by Wendell Berry. Particularly appropriate for people with poliltical anxiety about the events in the news, Peace of Wild Things can give comfort.

This design with areas of white was designed to be printed on wood. That’s because the place where it’s white, wood grain will show through-  which fits perfectly with the philosophy of the quote.

A second version with a filled in sky is the right choice to print on paper, metal, canvas or other surfaces.

If you’re feeling anxious, or depressed about the state of the country or world, read the words in The  Peace of Wild things – and then you too, can rest “in the grace of the world” and be free.

“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’t lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beautify 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, am am free.”

The finished size is 8″ x 10″.
