Simply Amazing Earth and Universe … ‘by four and a half pounds of sunlight.’ … Charles Wright, from “In Praise of Thomas Hardy,” A Short History of the Shadow: Poems
Each second the earth is struck hard
by four and a half pounds of sunlight.
Try to imagine that.
No wonder deep shade is what the soul longs for.
And not, as we always thought, the light.
