127. From ‘Lines Written in Kensington Gardens’
By Matthew Arnold  (1822–1888)
  
CALM soul of all things! make it mine
To feel, amid the city’s jar,
That there abides a peace of thine,
Man did not make, and cannot mar!
 
The will to neither strive nor cry,        5
The power to feel with others give!
Calm, calm me more! nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.
