In Praise of Craziness, of a Certain Kind

By Mary Oliver 

On cold evenings

My grandmother,

With ownership of half her mind-

The other half having flown back to Bohemia

 

Spread newspapers over the porch floor

So, she said, the garden ants could crawl

As under a blanket, and keep warm,

 

And what shall I wish for myself,

But, being so struck by the lightning of years,

To be like her with what is left, that loving.
