Poetry: Yes

Yes
by William Stafford
From The Way It Is: New and Select­ed Poems

It could hap­pen any time, tornado,
earth­quake, Armaged­don. It could happen.
Or sun­shine, love, salvation.

It could you know. That’s why we wake
and look out–no guarantees
in this life.

But some bonus­es, like morning,
like right now, like noon,
like evening.
