Mood Songs

A Dream of Peace
(August 1917)

Fathomless the Sea of Life
Whose depths are stirred
By passion and by discord
As of strife and war of jarring interests.
Deep the hate
Engendered by this lack of mutual trust
And concord among men.

Warring waves
Of racial aims; the tides
Of social feeling long represt;
The quarrels and piques of regal families;
The lust for nascent markets of the world -
All these, combined with greed of power and gold,
Make rough the ways of progress and of travel
Toward Love's Unbounded Shore.

The chart mismarkt
The compass led astray by false polarity -
God's plans are mockt
And Time put out of joint.

Be ours the task
To seize the rudder of this world astray -
This ship without a Pilot -
And to the haven of untroubled Peace
And Love and Life unfettered - to this bourne
