'I don't know exactly what a prayer is.
I do know how to pay attention, how to fall down into the grass,
how to be idle and blessed, how to stroll through the fields,
which is what I have been doing all day.
Tell me, what else should I have done?
Doesn't everything die at last, and too soon?
Tell me, what is it your plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
~ Mary Oliver, from 'The Summer Day'
