  • BE QUIET BE QUIET MY BROOK I KNOW

    POEM # 322

    BE QUIET BE QUIET MY BROOK I KNOW
    Be quiet be quiet my brook I know,
    Dark and cold waters continue to flow.
    Once was a trickle now a quiet stream,
    Water from Heaven shines with a gleam.
    Bubbling tamely over misshapen rocks,
    Caressing sounds like one hundred clocks.
    Soft flowing waters forever it took,
    Run quietly making a gentle brook.
    Brilliant midnight light reflecting below,
    Shining star studded sky Heavenly glow.

    Be quiet be quiet my brook I know,
    Ceaseless troubled water flowing so slow.
    Moon serenely silent and glimmering.
    Gentle brook stop trembling and shimmering.
    Your hasten current make thoughts go floating,
    Truth is shattered by whispered gloating.
    Drink the thrills of love and wonders beauty,
    Your face uplifted till Heaven does its duty.
    Hollowed deeps unfathomed whispering peace,
    Sinking waters, quietly, slowly will cease.
