Sonnet III A Quiet Mind

A quiet mind, who can possess?
A mind placid and sincere,
Sublime, void of deceit,
A mind content in little,
Free from strife and trifles,
A mind empty of worldly cares,
Harbors no ill or evil intent, wishing everyone well,
Shuns hate and filled with love for all
A mind with wings to soar above limits,
Filled with faith and belief,
A mind filled with happiness and untold joy
Oblivious of all of humans' wiles,
A magnanimous mind that eschews envy and jealousy
Who can possess?

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
