Reading the blog Into The Bardo I came across a poem by Pearl S. Buck that I hadn’t read, or even known about. Jamie Dedes writes a lovely post about it that I’d like to share with you. To read his blog click here: Into The Bardo
I give you the books I’ve made,
Body and soul, bled and flayed.
Yet the essence they contain
In one poem is made plain,
In one poem is made clear:
On this earth, through far or near,
Without love there’s only fear.
Essence by Pearl Buck
