Christmas Thoughts: Judith Wright and stumbling after the incessant pace

"We are caught in the endless circle of time and star/
that never chime with the blood; we weary, we grow lame,/
stumbling after their incessant pace
that slackens for us only when we are/
caught deep in sleep, or music or a lover's face"
Judith Wright, The Moving Image from Collected Poems
