Peace

Language: English

Peace flows into me
      As the tide to the pool by the shore;
      It is mine forevermore,
It ebbs not back like the sea.

I am the pool of blue
      That worships the vivid sky;
      My hopes were heaven-high,
They are all fulfilled in you.

I am the pool of gold
      When sunset burns and dies, --
      You are my deepening skies,
Give me your stars to hold.
