The Best of It

The Best of It

by Kay Ryan

However carved up
or pared down we get,
we keep on making
the best of it as though
it doesn’t matter that
our acre’s down to
a square foot. As
though our garden
could be one bean
and we’d rejoice if
it flourishes, as
though one bean
could nourish us.

(from The Niagara River: Poems
. Grove Press, New York. )
