comfort you—a mockingbird, a breeze, rain
on the roof, Chopin’s Nocturnes, a kiss,
or even me—in my chilly kitchen
with my coat on—thinking of you."
- Ellen Bass, from Insomnia (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

"Happiness, knowledge, not in another place, but this place—not for another hour, but this hour…"
- Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass, from "A Song For Occupations" (via liquidnight)
