“Oh, hush the noise, ye men of strife / And hear the angels sing!

“Peace on Earth”
shimmering
upside down
in lights’ reflection
on the dark, moon-dappled River.
Lord, we long to hear
the angels sing.
Save us
from
noise
and
men of  strife.
Rather
set peace aright
set our hearts aright
and
tune our ears
to hear
the angels’ sing.
