War and Peace By Sri Chinmoy

War and Peace By Sri Chinmoy Man invents war. Man discovers peace. He invents war from without. He discovers peace from within. War man throws. Peace man sows. The smile of war is the flood of human blood. The smile of peace is the love, below, above. Peace is the whole truth that wishes to […]

Peace By Alfred Noyes

Peace By Alfred Noyes Give me the pulse of the tide again And the slow lapse of the leaves, The rustling gold of a field of grain And a bird in the nested eaves; And a fishing-smack in the old harbour Where all was happy and young; And an echo or two of the songs […]

Peace By W. B. Yeats

Peace By W. B. Yeats H, that Time could touch a formThat could show what Homer’s ageBred to be a hero’s wage.’Were not all her life but storm,Would not painters paint a formOf such noble lines,’ I said,’Such a delicate high head,All that sternness amid charm,All that sweetness amid strength?’Ah, but peace that comes at […]

I Many Times Thought Peace Had Come By Emily Dickinson

I Many Times Thought Peace Had Come By Emily Dickinson I many times thought Peace had comeWhen peace was far away,As wrecked men deem they sight the landWhen far at sea they stay. And struggle slacker, but to prove,As hopelessly as I,That many the fictitious shoresBefore the harbor lie. Copyright © by the owner. Discover […]

Peace On Earth By William Carlos Williams

Peace On Earth By William Carlos Williams The Archer is wake!The Swan is flying!Gold against blueAn Arrow is lying.There is hunting in heaven—Sleep safe till tomorrow.

Peace By Sara Teasdale

Peace By Sara Teasdale Peace flows into meAs the tide to the pool by the shore;It is mine forevermore,It ebbs not back like the sea. I am the pool of blueThat worships the vivid sky;My hopes were heaven-high,They are all fulfilled in you. I am the pool of goldWhen sunset burns and dies, —You are […]

The Plains Of Peace By Olivia Ward Bush-Banks

The Plains Of Peace By Olivia Ward Bush-Banks Again my fancy takes its flight, And soars away on thoughtful wing, Again my soul thrills with delight, And this the fancied theme, I sing, From Earthly scenes awhile, I find release, And dwell upon the restful Plains of Peace. The Plains of Peace are passing fair, […]

Peace By Gerard Manley Hopkins

Peace By Gerard Manley Hopkins When will you ever, Peace, wild wooddove, shy wings shut, Your round me roaming end, and under be my boughs? When, when, Peace, will you, Peace? I’ll not play hypocrite To own my heart: I yield you do come sometimes; but That piecemeal peace is poor peace. What pure peace […]

Peace By Patrick Kavanagh

Peace By Patrick Kavanagh And sometimes I am sorry when the grass Is growing over the stones in quiet hollows And the cocksfoot leans across the rutted cart-pass That I am not the voice of country fellows Who now are standing by some headland talking Of turnips and potatoes or young corn Of turf banks […]

Peace By Rupert Brooke

Peace By Rupert Brooke Now, God be thanked who has matched us with his hour,      And caught our youth, and wakened us from sleeping!With hand made sure, clear eye, and sharpened power,      To turn, as swimmers into cleanness leaping,Glad from a world grown old and cold and weary;      Leave the sick hearts that honor could not move,And half-men, […]
