Poem of the Week: “Introductions” by Moya Cannon

Introductions

Some of what we love
we stumble upon—
a purse of gold thrown on the road,
a poem, a friend, a great song.

And more
discloses itself to us—
a well among green hazels,
a nut thicket—
when we are worn out searching
for something quite different.

And more
comes to us, carried
as carefully
as a bright cup of water,
as new bread.

–Moya Cannon, from The Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry, Volume II (2010)
