Relief By Kay Ryan (November 22, 2012)

We know it is close
to something lofty.
Simply getting over being sick
or finding lost property
has it in the leap,
the purge, the quick humility
of witnessing a bith-
how love seeps up
and retakes the earth.
There is a dreamy
wading feeling to your walk
inside the current
of restored riches,
clocks set back,
disasters averted.
