"The first step ... shall be to lose the way."

Harriet Richardson, a Student Organizer at Pennsylvania's Juniata College, presses a cloth to the wounds of Galway Kinnell, 
who was then Poet-In-Residence at Juiata, Selma, Alabama, 1965.

"...it is necessary
to reteach a thing its loveliness,
to put a hand on its brow
of the flower
and retell it in words and in touch
it is lovely
until it flowers again from within, of self-blessing..." 
Saint Francis and the Sow, by Galway Kinnell (x)
