Patchwork of Peace

I come into the peace of wild things
The dawn now breaks on you, the dark is over,
Where there’s no ill, no grief, but sleep has mending,
For these have governed in our lives,
And yet of death it giveth me occasion.
When from a thousand skies
Set free from present sorrow,
Would come at last to God’s great town,
That leads away from thee —
They’ve dealt with life and been tempered by it.
