In a world that often feels chaotic and overwhelming, poetry can offer a sanctuary of solace and wisdom. The poems in The Wisdom of Wild Grace, a collection from Paraclete Poetry, provide just such a sanctuary. These poems explore the depths of spirituality, nature, and the search for meaning with an evocative beauty that will resonate with readers of all backgrounds.

Little we see in Nature that is ours;

We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!

Wordsworth's poem laments the loss of connection with nature and the divine that has come with the rise of industrialization. His words are a reminder that we cannot find true fulfillment in material possessions alone.
