Today (August 5th) marks the birthday of Kentucky farmer-poet Wendell Berry…
We honor the occasion with seven of our favorite poems by him …
“No, no, there is no going back”
This Day: Collected & New Sabbath Poems

Less and less you are
that possibility you were.
More and more you have become
those lives and deaths
that have belonged to you.
