Quiet
By Ernest Radford (1857–1919)
 
TIRED brain, there is a place of rest
  On the broad bosom of the land
Where quiet will reward the quest.
  The dinning of the iron hand
Will be unheard; ah! there shall we        5
  Have with the noise of tumbling rills,
And with the music of the sea,
  The quiet that my dream fulfils
Of Quiet, aching tho’ it be.
