In Reserve
Viola Jacobson Berg

What does a stone
have to say for itself,
so unperturbed, unruffled,

and resting ...
it really knows
how to rest,

how to keep
its own counsel,

to wait,
and listen...

It was given notice
eons ago
to be ready
to cry out.

If man shouid
ever neglect to praise
the Creator
the stones
were alerted,
eternally alerted

to break their silence
and show the world how.
