Those of you who also have myself on your friends list, I appplogize for repeating myself.

I just thought I would share my favorite poem with you. I just got the English translation, so here it is...

GIFT
by Czeslaw Milosz

A day so happy.
Fog lifted early, I worked in the garden.
Hummingbirds were stopping over honeysuckle flowers.
There is nothing on earth I wanted to possess.
I knew no one worth my envying him.
Whatever evil I had suffered, I forgot.
To think that I was once the same man did not embarass me.
In my body I felt no pain.
When straigtening up, I saw the blue sea and sails.
