glorious laughter

I Have Just Said
By Mary Oliver

I have just said
ridiculous to you
and in response,

your glorious laughter.
these are the days
the sun
is swimming back

to the east
and the light on the water
as never, it seems, before.

I can’t remember
every spring,
I can’t remember

so many years!
Are the morning kisses
the sweetest
or the evenings

or the inbetweens?
All I know
is that “thank you” should appear

So, just in case
I can’t find
the perfect place-
“Thank you, thank you.”
