“I have to cast my lot with those who … reconstitute the world”

My heart is moved by all I cannot save:
so much has been destroyed

I have to cast my lot with those
who age after age, perversely,

with no extraordinary power,
reconstitute the world.

[from Adrienne Rich, “Natural Resources”, thanks to Paul Rogat Loeb’s The Impossible Will Take A Little While, Basic, 2004, p274]
