“Stone” by Charles Simic

I first read The World Doesn’t End by Charles Simic in college, but I carried that one book throughout the rest of my life. I often refer to it whenever I find myself in a rut for reasons I struggle to explain. So I hope that his words have as much of an effect on you as they do for me.

For the ninth poem, I have chosen “Stone” by Charles Simic. Please enjoy.
