Mary Oliver: After I Fall Down the Stairs

(Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images North America)

After I Fall Down the Stairs 
                At the Golden Temple

For a while I could not remember some word
    I was in need of,
and I was bereaved and said: where are you,
    beloved friend?
                          --Mary Oliver, from A Thousand Mornings
