from The Lake
by Peter Gill
“Many there are who incorrectly think that
Peace is passive and free from action but
deep beneath the surface powerful forces
are at work so that the outer form may
manifest serene within the waves of
discontent, of conflict fear and strife.
Peace is strength resolute and secure;
an inner biding faith confident and sure.
Take your fill that you too, may be this
point of poise within a troubled world.”
