A Timbered Choir: The Sabbath Poems 1978 to 1997 by Wendell Berry is filled with demonstrations of his reverence for life and the natural world. The author, who lives and farms in Port Royal, Kentucky, has over the years used the Sabbath for long looking and listening. In these poems, he muses on the changing rhythms of the seasons and the cycles of death and rebirth. Berry sings his praises of trees, animals, and the beauty of a place he deeply respects.
