April is Poetry Month

To celebrate poetry, as well as spring (at last!), here is a beautiful piece by Charles Ghigna.  He has written more than 5,000 poems!  Check out a few at his Father Goose blog.
Be Still in the World

Be still in the world wherever you are,

listen to life’s lullaby;

the heartbeat, the breathing, the giving, receiving,

the sun and the moon and the star.

They all shine true through the essence of you,

a beacon of boundless light;

the father, the mother, the sister, the brother,

all are within you tonight.

Let the flow of the seas, the lilt of the breeze,

the rush and the calm of all time

carry your dreams along rivers and streams

and let you be still where you are.
