    St Valentine’s Day

In Praise of Craziness, of a Certain Kind

On cold evenings,

my grandmother,

with ownership of half her mind —

the other half having flown back to Bohemia —


spread newspapers over the porch floor

so, she said, the garden ants could crawl beneath,

as under a blanket, and keep warm,


and what shall I wish for, for myself,

but, being so struck by lightning of years,

to be like her with what is left, that loving.


Mary Oliver
