and batter it against each other's wall.

About these ads

Silence is something else, I have discovered;

a wave of inwardness that takes the soul

on a white wind on which it lies uncovered,

and all about it noiseless wonders roll.

Be lifted on that wind, the depths of heaven

also are that alive; look in your heart,

and you will find you have the treasure even

About these ads

as your life makes you of that calm a part.
