Guyon2

Kind solitude
Away from the world and the noise
Divine quietude,
Silence, like the night!

Happy the other that possesses you,
And tastes your sweetness,
The cure of all ills!
Unfortunate are those who do not love  you!

It is blessedness,
To be heart to heart with God:
There no disquietude
Troubles the peace of this place.

~~Madame Guyon

(tr. Rev. Nancy C. James)
