Quietness - Poem by Matthias Pantaleon

Play Poem Video

The Journey I embark upon
Through the wild street of life
Where men are without good head
And Judges flood with sentiments
Are virtues far above the station of life
To which princes are born
I wish above all, to lead a life of ease
Quietness and cheer
To grace the court of fate with dignity
And bow out of this realm
As quiet as sea breeze
Without troubling myself with victories
Nor the need for plenty
Just me, as constant as the sun
And angels looking down on me
As long as life endures


Poet's Notes about The Poem

If wishes were horses...quietness, health and wisdom are what the wise men preach to be the just standard of true felicity.

    The journey that you took upon
    The path that youre walking on
    We both run the same way
    Walking together, walking alone....
