Camping Day Four


How hard to realize that every camp of men or beast 
has this glorious starry firmament for a roof!  
In such places standing alone on the mountain-top 
it is easy to realize that whatever special nests we make 
- leaves and moss like the marmots and birds, or tents or piled stone - 
we all dwell in a house of one room 
- the world with the firmament for its roof - 
and are sailing the celestial spaces without leaving any track.
