the soul Knows

From everything our soul saw,
Lessons of wisdom only to draw;
The clouds, the colors in the sky;
The gentle breeze that whispers by;
The fields all white with waving lavender;
The lilies that the vale adorn;
The reed that trembles in the wind;
The tree, where none its fruit could find;
The sliding sand, the flinty rock,
That bears unmoved the tempest’s shock;
The thorns that on the earth abound;
The tender grass that clothes the ground;
The little birds that fly in air;
The sheep that need the shepherd’s care;
The pearls that deep in ocean lie;
The gold that charms the miser’s eye;
The fruitful and the thorny ground;
The piece of silver lost and found;
The reaper, with his sheaves returning;
The gathered wood prepared for burning;
The wandering sheep brought back with joy;
The father’s welcome for his boy;
The wedding-feast, prepared in state;
The foolish virgins’ cry, ‘too late!’
All from his lips some truth proclaim,
Or learn to tell their Maker’s name."
The soul whispers
and the spirit listens
