Hope


Hope is with you when you believe
 The earth is not a dream but living flesh,
 that sight, touch, and hearing do not lie,
 That all thing you have ever seen here
 Are like a garden looked at from a gate.
You cannot enter. But you're sure it's there.
 Could we but look more clearly and wisely
 We might discover somewhere in the garden
 A strange new flower and an unnamed star.
Some people say that we should not trust our eyes,
 That there is nothing, just a seeming,
 There are the ones who have no hope.
 They think the moment we turn away,
 The world, behind our backs, ceases to exist,
 As if snatched up by the hand of thieves. 
Czeslaw Milosz
