Still.
Be stiller
Than the night
O my soul
They will scorn
They will laugh
But
Be stiller
Than the night
O my soul.
Be calmer
Than a summer ocean
O my soul
They might poke
They might prod
Be calmer
Than the ripples
Awakened by soft winds
On an ocean.
Should this prove
A task herculean hard
Be the still night
And the calm ocean
O my soul.
