The Peace Of Wild Things

When despair grows in me
and I wake in the night at the least sound
in fear of what my life and my children's lives may be,
I go and lie down where the wood drake
rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds.
I come into the peace of wild things
who do not tax their lives with forethought
of grief. I come into the presence of still water.
And I feel above me the day-blind stars
waiting for their light. For a time
I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.

Cute little poem but so right on About the only thing I wold like to see change is the removal of the second 'thing' 'When the brain & heart disagree One wants to do one thing The other another thing' 'When the brain & heart disagree One wants to do one thing The other another ' Just my opinion though so take it for what it's worth Anyway, Liked it Tom
