TODAY'S POETRY READING (PATIENCE)

Why this fierce struggle to achieve thine ends?

This selfish argument? This fire which lends

Heat to resentment, ashes to remorse?

Canst thou bend Truth and Nature to thy will?

Bend thou, and work and wait; be strong and still;

Soft growth is stronger than vehement force.

Be as a flower, content to be, to grow

In sweetness day by day; content to know

The hidden blessing in the seeming curse;

A child of Love, un-argumentative;

Content to be and know-as thou dost live-

The simple secret of the Universe.
