"Even if No One"––poem by Dorothy 

Even if No One

"Accept the miracle."
                     Mary Oliver

Believe it.
These things happen.
To you, to me,
to every one of us
every day.

That squirrel that lingered
in the grass to spy you
as you went by.
That tree with its
 marvelous curlicues called bark.
Those fallen leaves forming
a radiant mosaic on the ground,
violet, gold, soft scarlet,
each in its appointed place.

Are these not miracles?
Are they not perfect?
Isn't it a miracle
to be alive,
to hear this music and
move about the room,
to take in each breath
one after another,
even if no one
taught you how?
