The wishes of my heart
I would crave wealth, not riches as I live: The wealth of learning with a quiet heart. An open mind with leisure time to give To poetry, to music, and to art; The time for children's laughter, time to learn The wisdom of the sages of the past; The time to watch the stars--a candle burn In sacrificial fire to the last.
I would speak gently though the din be loud, I would move softly without hurried haste, I would be inconspicuous in a crowd, I would conserve the energies we waste; I would see beauty in each common task, Each bird, each tree, the clouds that light shines through. This is my heart's desire--the thing I ask: To daily grow as God would have me do.
