Yearnings - A Prelude

"I suspected that all the yearnings for I knew not what that I had ever felt - 

when autumn leaves were burning in the twilight, 

when wild geese flew crying overhead,
 
when I looked up at bare branches against the stars, 

when spring arrived on an April morning - 

 -were in truth yearnings for him.  For God.  I yearned towards Him."  

Sheldon VanAuken, A Severe Mercy
