The Friend of Silence

 "We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness.  God is the friend of silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls."

Mother Teresa

My River Runs to Thee

My River Runs to Thee
by Emily Dickinson

My River runs to thee--
Blue Seal!  Wilt welcome me?
My River wait reply--
Oh Sea--look graciously--
I'll fetch thee Brooks--
From spotted nooks--
Say--Sea--Take Me!

'The Water Nymphs' by Ellis Parker Butler

The Water Nymphs by Ellis Parker Butler

They hide in the brook when I seek to draw nearer,
Laughing amain when I feign to depart;
Often I hear them, now faint and now clearer—
Innocent bold or so sweetly discreet.
Are they Nymphs of the Stream at their playing
Or but the brook I mistook for a voice?
Little care I; for, despite harsh Time’s flaying,
Brook voice or Nymph voice still makes me rejoice.

Ellis Parker Butler American Author, Humorist and Speaker Born: December 5, 1869; Muscatine, Iowa. Died: September 13, 1937; Williamsville, Massachusetts.
