The Greatest Joy

For peace to last
that would be the greatest joy
summer mornings
"so sweet
and so cold"
variation within order
the music of lazy ease
rising here and there
rising softly
to a faster chorus
of chaos
light chaos
just gently
the urge to move
the urge to slide
as a snail does
as cattle do
to low
so sweetly
in soft, dawn sun
soft, dawn breeze
of summer.
that would be the greatest joy
(for peace to last.)
