Happy New Year

… Truly
I try to be good but sometimes
a person just has to break out and
act like the wild and springy thing
one used to be. It’s impossible not
to remember wild and want it back.

—from “Green, Green Is My Sister’s House,” by Mary Oliver, from A Thousand Mornings (2012)

Wild.

Wild.
