Alternate Author Name(s): Hedbrooke, Andrew
Subject(s): Peace; Transcendentalism


'T IS not in seeking,
'T is not in endless striving,
Thy quest is found:
Be still and listen;
Be still and drink the quiet
Of all around.

Not for thy crying,
Not for thy loud beseeching,
Will peace draw near:
Rest with palms folded;
Rest with thine eyelids fallen --
Lo! peace is here.
