Calm Be The Soul

Rating: 5.0

Calm be the soul
Full bathed in sunlight
Soft be the heart
That dwells on love
Still be the mind
That thinks of kindness
Bright be the eyes
That search above

Feared be the soul
Full bathed in darkness
Sad be the heart
That dwells on woe
Grieved be the mind
That thinks of hatred
Dull be the eyes
That search below

Calm be the soul.....

Marvellous poetry, as many have observed, it is indeed a prayer of the soul.

Terrifically effective having the mirrored stanzas like that. A joyful song with a sad echo.

Sentimentally inspirational, and thought provoking. It stirs emotions, and is compelling in thought. Beautiful rhythm.

We are one with all these things, although we constantly want the good to prevail, the sadness and grief are also a part of the vast ocean we call life. Once we finally accept this idea, The Soul will be Calm again. Just some thoughts on this poem of opposites, well done.
