I hold the most archaic
values on earth:

— the fertility of the soul
— the magic of the animals
— the power-vision in solitude
— the love & ecstasy of the dance
— the common work of the tribe

This is posted as we watch severe weather, rain, and snow across the southeast states. Our snow at the higher elevations of the surrounding mountains is nothing — stay dry and warm dear friends and family.

In a tangle of cliffs I chose a place — 
Bird paths, but no trails for men.
What’s beyond the yard?
White clouds clinging to vague rocks.
Now I’ve lived here—how many years —
Again and again, spring and winter pass.
Go tell families with silverware and cars
“What the use of all the noise and money?”

Some critic tried to put me down —
“Your poems lask the Basic Truth of Tao”
And I recall the old-timers
Who were poor and didn’t care
I have to laugh at him,
He misses the point entirely,
Men like that
Ought to stick to making money.

— Gary Snyder
