Tranquility (c) by Polly Guerin Inspired by Celia Thaxter, American Poet

Celia Thaxter's Garden by the Sea in Appeldore, the Isles of Shoals, a group of nine small rocky islands off the coast of New Hampshire.

Tranquility (c)
By Polly Guerin

My heart is in the land by the sea

Tranquility is the place I yearn to be....

Where the roaring waves tame the rocks

Sending vibrating rhythmic shocks...

Somewhere a lone fiddler plays a mournful tale

While outside rages a surging gale...

In a sudden the sun breaks blue

Clearing clouds the day renews....

Bringing love and radiant hope

Encouragement, the will to cope...

The storm of life was a passing cloud

The fiddler's mellifluous tune now loud...

And the jig of life dances like the sea

Yes, the land of tranquility is where I want to be!
