Mary Oliver: After I Fall Down the Stairs

(Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images North America)


After I Fall Down the Stairs 
                At the Golden Temple
For a while I could not remember some word
    I was in need of,
and I was bereaved and said: where are you,
    beloved friend?
                      
                          –Mary Oliver, from A Thousand Mornings
