Every Common Bush Afire

7 05 2013

blackberry in red

Earth’s crammed with heaven,

And every common bush afire with God;

But only he who sees, takes off his shoes.

The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries,

And daub their natural faces unaware

More and more from the first similitude.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning
