Today I was getting some food around my kitchen, when I suddenly thought of this poem. When I googled it I found it’s actually only a fragment of a poem, but it reminded me of all the people who comment on my blog and the vegan companies who have reached out to me and all the vegetarians and vegans out there who might feel, with me, that this poem describes a kind of secret quality in them. Thought I would share! It is from this poem by William Carlos Williams:
It was the love of love, the love that swallows up all else, a grateful love, a love of nature, of people, of animals, a love engendering gentleness and goodness that moved me and that I saw in you.
The love of nature, people and animals. Of gentleness and goodness.
Do you know what I mean? I see this as a trait shared by animal lovers. I hope some one recognizes it in me. I recognize it in y’all, you animal lovers, you!!!!
Isn’t it a beautiful poem?
