“Walk Slowly, Bow Often #8”, Walk Slowly, Bow Often Collection, Medium 24 x 24 inch oil painting on a handmade wood panel.


When I Am Among The Trees by Mary Oliver


When I am among the trees,

especially the willows and the honey locust,

equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,

they give off such hints of gladness.

I would almost say that they save me, and daily.


I am so distant from the hope of myself,

in which I have goodness, and discernment,

and never hurry through the world

but walk slowly, and bow often.


Around me the trees stir in their leaves

and call out, “Stay awhile.”

The light flows from their branches.


And they call again, “It's simple,” they say,

“and you too have come

into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled

with light, and to shine.”



“Walk Slowly, Bow Often #8 ” is a one of a kind 24 x 24 inch original oil painting on a natural wood panel handmade  by me.
