another morning comes

I look at my sloping fields now turninggreen with the young grass of April. What must I do to go free? I think I must put on a deathlier knowledge, and prepare to die rather than enter into the design of man's hate. I will purge my mind of the airy claims of church and state. I will serve the earth and not pretend my life could better serve. Another morning comes with its strange cure. - Wendell Berry
