Quote for Today: Theodore Roethke

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.
       —Theodore Roethke, The Waking

 

You can read the entire poem here. It’s one of my favorites.
