The Old Poets of China

Mary Oliver's poetry rings my bell and touches my spirit! The following is from the volume "Why I Wake Early".

The Old Poets of China

Wherever I am, the world comes after me.
It offers me its busyness. It does not believe
that I do not want it. Now I understand
why the old poets of China went so far and high
into the mountains, then crept into the pale mist.
