Day of Change

Lawrence Holofcener

It was something to see

A sea of human wheat

Walking on the plains of Illinois.

Three million men and women

Moving at a quiet pace

Each absorbed in the wonder of it.

A year ago I fended and fretted

And fought for myself

Against everything.

Today I gladly tender

The paltry gift of my flesh

For the good of humankind

For all living things

For the earth, the universe

For the life of a child

Or a tree.
