PEACE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Though all the joys of life be done
Last Line: Oh, they walk there, see they walk there!
Alternate Author Name(s): Hinkson, Katharine Tynan
Subject(s): God; Happiness; Love; Peace; Joy; Delight


THOUGH all the joys of life be done,
Who cares? so the dearest one
Laughs in the sun, plays in the sun.

Your heart's love and my heart's love
Walking in a Paradise grove
And the eyes of God above.

Come up hither, look with me!
On the pleasant green country,
Birds and flowers and waving tree.

Here the days go slow and dim
Lacking him and wanting him:
Life goes quicker than a dream.

Your heart's joy and my heart's joy
Set above care and annoy,
Golden boy and golden boy.

So that it goes well with these,
Love and Joy and sweetest ease,
Who cares if the world's amiss?

In the light and ambient air,
Groves and fields beyond compare,
Oh, they walk there, see they walk there!
