You want to cry aloud for your mistakes. But to tell the truth the world doesn’t need any more of that sound.
So if you’re going to do it and can’t stop yourself, if your pretty mouth can’t hold it in, at least go by yourself across
the forty fields and the forty dark inclines of rocks and water to the place where the falls are flinging out their white sheets
like crazy, and there is a cave behind all that jubilation and water-fun and you can stand there, under it, and roar all you
want and nothing will be disturbed; you can drip with despair all afternoon and still, on a green branch, its wings just lightly touched
by the passing foil of the water, the thrush, puffing out its spotted breast, will sing of the perfect, stone-hard beauty of everything.
