Peace flows into me As the tide to the pool by the shore; It is mine forevermore, It ebbs not back like the sea.I am the pool of blue That worships the vivid sky; My hopes were heaven-high, They are all fulfilled in you. I am the pool of gold When sunset burns and dies, — You are my deepening skies, Give me your stars to hold.
