What is an inspiring story? An inspiring story is a depressing story that unravels in a miraculous turn of events and transforms itself into an inspiring story.

    That This
    by Susan Howe

    Day is a type when visible
    objects change then put


    on form but the anti-type
    That thing not shadowed


    The way music is formed of
    cloud and fire once actually


    concrete now accidental as
    half truth or as whole truth


    Is light anything like this
    stray pencil commonplace


    copy as to one aberrant
    onward-gliding mystery


    A secular arietta variation
    Grass angels perish in this


    harmonic collision because
    non-being cannot be 'this'


    Not spirit not space finite
    Not infinite to those fixed—


    That this millstone as such
    Quiet which side on which—


    Is one mind put into another
    in us unknown to ourselves
    by going about among trees
    and fields in moonlight or in
    a garden to ease distance to
    fetch home spiritual things


    That a solitary person bears
    witness to law in the ark to


    an altar of snow and every
    age or century for a day is
