David Whyte ("Where Many Rivers Meet")

Updated: Jul 7, 2021


Those who will not slip beneath

the still surface on the well of grief

turning downward through its black water

to the place we cannot breathe

will never know the source from which we drink,

the secret water, cold and clear,

nor find in the darkness glimmering

the small round coins

thrown by those who wished for something else.

David Whyte, Anglo-Irish poet and author
