Halcyon Days

Halcyon Days

"Not from successful love alone,

Nor wealth, nor honor'd middle age, nor victories of politics or

But as life wanes, and all the turbulent passions calm,

As gorgeous, vapory, silent hues cover the evening sky,

As softness, fulness, rest, suffuse the frame, like freshier, balmier

As the days take on a mellower light, and the apple at last hangs
really finish'd and indolent-ripe on the tree,

Then for the teeming quietest, happiest days of all!

The brooding and blissful halcyon days!"

"Halcyon Days"
By Walt Whitman

(Leaves of Grass)

"All shall be well and all shall be well and all manner of thing shall be well
for there is a force of love moving through the Universe that holds us fast and will never let us go."

Julian of Norwich also known as Juliana of Norwich, the Lady Julian, Dame Julian or Mother Julian, was an English anchoress (fully giving up a secular life and living like a fully cloistered monastic for the rest of her life) of the 15th century. 

Her writings, now known as Revelations of Divine Love, are the earliest surviving English language works by a woman.
