Intent at one place on earth is

how to live: the earth will turn and

scan the sky: the lines I draw, somewhere

at infinite rejoin. All things I do

belong: the where I work all day no

person come, if I draw right when


comes the sky will find my hand. Poem by William Stafford was first published in the Monitor in 1973.
