Heaven Haven

I have desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.

And I have asked to be
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.

Gerard Manley Hopkins

This poem was made into songs in the 1970s by the prog folk band Caedmon and more recently by The Innocence Mission on their album Befriended
