Goodnight's Prayer


Guard the pane of my heart
Let not foes steal the peace;
Paint my dream a solemn art
All I ask of you is this
Make me ride on chariot dream
Love for others, in me, grow;
And when I wake in morning's gleam
Give me strength, my boat, to row

    on the strength of the rhyming and ideas, i score it a good...almost very good. peace/this isn't quite right but it is close enough. thanks for sharing. (Report) Reply
