Deep Peace - A Celtic Prayer




A Celtic Prayer 

Deep peace 
of the running waves 
to you. 

Deep peace 
of the flowing air 
to you. 

Deep peace 
of the quiet earth 
to you. 

Deep peace 
of the shining stars
to you 

Deep peace 
of the son of peace
to you 


music by Karl Jenkins

    1. Deep peace in everything. Yes, I like that. A fruit going bad but still not lost . . .

  3. These lines have been extracted from a poem whose first line is 'Deep peace I breathe into you' and is from
    "The Dominion of Dreams. Under the Dark Star
    by Fiona Macleod (William Sharp, 1895)

    1. Heron's View, my thanks for the comment and info. It's much appreciated. I will follow up on the information about The Dominion of Dreams . . . Fiona Macleod.

    2. According to Wikipedia Fiona MacLeod is a pseudonym used by the writer William Sharp, an interesting and controversial character who ended up being buried in Sicily. His poem is much longer than the version above.

  4. You are very welcome Gwil.
    I am lucky in that we have several of William Sharps books.
    His pseudonym Fiona MacLeod was seen as part of his alter ego by many of his peers.
    I conclude by saying there is nothing new in the world :)
