The Quiet Restless Voice

defeatI have known defeat, known agony of loss
And from this found a quiet restless voice,
Beauty that breathes within the hidden deep.

Now I offer prayer for Earth—
For Life itself that stirs within the ocean depths,
Upon the mountain top and greening meadow,
Fills the lungs of every creature
That yearns for peace and
Knows strong arms of tender love.
