Fragment On Nature


Nature!
We are encompassed by her;
impossible to escape from her
and impossible to come nearer to her.
The most unnatural also is nature.
Who sees her not on all sides
sees her truly nowhere.
At each moment she starts upon a long, long journey
and at each moment reaches her end.

She lets every child enlarge upon her,
every fool judge her,
thousands pass heedlessly over her seeing nothing;
yet she has friends among all
and has her recompense from all.

Even in resisting her laws one obeys them;
and one works with her
even in desiring to work against her.
Love is her crown.
Only through love does one come near to her.
She has isolated all things
so she may bring all together.
All is eternally present in her,
for she knows neither past nor future.
For her, the present is eternity.


Goethe

I had to remove the half eaten remains of a dove from outside my back door the other day.
It's mostly plucked lower body and remaining wing was covered with the ants from beneath the patio.
Where was the head and the flesh that had been pulled from the bones?
Where were the feathers that had been plucked from the corpse?
The predator was long gone its belly full and the feathers now lined the nests of other birds waiting to warm thier soon to come young.
As I carefully remove the body to the bin a smile on my face and the thought "How beautiful nature is! What glory to behold that which I am!"
"No small part of this am I but the whole natural wonder!"
"WHAT LOVE! what love."
