A Peaceful Place - Poem by John Leroy Maxwell

A mountain brook, a mountain stream
Rippling waters weave me a dream
I try to grasp that special note
The stoic rocks, the ripples poke
Extended fingers play the tune
In harmony the ripples croon
The waters dance, so full of glee
A mountain stream, a symphony
The score be written from above
In all His mercy, all His love
A story told to me, to you
Compassion filled, compassion true
From wence it come, where does it go
What unknown tales, for us to know
What secrets held beneath it's crest
It never sleeps, it'll never rest
Serenity it gives to me
All my cares doth set me free
I'd like to stay, forever here
But leave I must, this place so dear
