I have lost a leaflet with Peguy's poem God Speaks translated by Julian Green, which spoke of my little hope as well as resurrection with the image of the rough bark and tender bud. Can you help me find it?

In our Bible study this morning a film we watched spoke of a poem Charles Peguy wrote on the supernatural gifts. It is appraently no longer published, but you may have some copies that I could order. Kindly reply to my email above.
