You With The Still Soul

Maybe you have a still soul that

goes murmurless like water in the deep

of rivers;


And perchance you wander

silent amid the din of world’s

grinding barter like one

journeying in strange lands.


You, too, with the still soul,

have your mission, for beneath the

dashing, noisy waves must ever

run the silent waters that give the tide

its course.



Max Ehrmann
