Two sailboats
Sitting calmly on
Sea of glass.

Cavalry,

But not Grant.

Nearby, pictures Grant
Sitting calmly.

For those who seek the peacefulness
That comes beneath a palm,
Or need the soothing healing of
A fragrant warming balm,
There ought to be an internet
With one address – dot calm.

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our fev’rish ways!
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives Thy service find,
In deeper rev’rence, praise. 

In simple trust like theirs who heard,
Beside the Syrian Sea,
The gracious calling of the Lord,
Let us, like them, without a word,
Rise up and follow Thee. 

O Sabbath rest by Galilee!
O calm of hills above,
Where Jesus knelt to share with Thee
The silence of eternity
Interpreted by loved. 

Drop Thy still dews of quietness
Till all our strivings cease;
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
And let our ordered lives confess
The beauty of Thy peace. 

Breathe thru the heats of our desire
Thy coolness and Thy balm;
Let sense be dumb, let flesh retire;
Speak thru the earthquake, wind, and fire,
O still small voice of calm!

         The Light Of Stars

The night is come, but not too soon;
   And sinking silently,
All silently, the little moon
   Drops down behind the sky. 

There is no light in earth or heaven
   But the cold light of stars;
And the first watch of night is given
   To the red planet Mars. 

Is it the tender star of love?
   The star of love and dreams?
Oh no! from that blue tent above
   A hero’s armor gleams. 

And earnest thoughts within me rise,
    When I behold afar,
Suspended in the evening skies,
    The shield of that red star. 

O star of strength! I see thee stand
   And smile upon my pain;
Thou beckonest with thy mailed hand,
   And I am strong again. 

Within my breast there is no light
   But the cold light of stars;
I give the first watch of the night
   To the red planet Mars. 

The star of the unconquered will,
   He rises in my breast,
Serene, and resolute, and still,
   And calm, and self-possessed. 

And thou, too, whosoe’er thou art,
   That readest this brief psalm,
As one by one thy hopes depart,
   Be resolute and calm. 

Oh, fear not in a world like this,
    And thou shalt know erelong,
Know how sublime a thing it is
   To suffer and be strong.
