Treasure Island

Royston Allen


Peace, Be Still

Petrified in the boat they were panicking
as oceanic waves cascaded in.
Awakening You commanded the sea.
Saying 'Be still, ' with such authority.

amazed as they saw the wind and waves subside
'What manner of man is this' they cried.
The storm was quelled and the wind did cease
The Almighty obeyed, they were left in peace.
