Be Still And Drink The Quiet


'Tis not in seeking,
'Tis not in endless striving,
Thy quest is found:
Be still and listen;
Be still and drink the quiet
Of all around.

Not for thy crying,
Not for thy loud beseeching,
Will peace draw near:
Rest with palms folded;
Rest with thine eyelids fallen --
Lo! peace is here.

Thanks Doug, though the way I feel this morning I will be sound asleep in 30 seconds!
