40 Days of Poetry: Day 4: The Waking by Theodore Roethke

In response to the Covid-19 outbreak around the globe, Synkroniciti will be posting a video of a poem every day for forty days. If you would like to participate, please make a video on your favorite device and send it to us via Facebook Messenger (Synkroniciti or Katherine Grace McDaniel) or email synkronicitihouston@gmail.com.

Our fourth poem is one of my favorites, Theodore Roethke‘s The Waking. It’s about learning as we go along, about expressing wonder and gratitude and about keeping a certain sort of humility in that we don’t assume we know exactly what is happening in the world or ourselves.
