Peace of Wild Things, The
Wendell Berry (b.1934)
Gentleman farmer and poet Wendell Berry writes in many genres and has been described as a modern day Thoreau. This setting of Berry's "The Peace of Wild Things" often bring singers to tears upon first reading; as it connects the singer to our animal nature, stills our minds, slows our breath and invites respite from despair.
