It is time to float on the waters of the night.





“It is time to float on the waters of the night. 
Time to wrap my arms around this book 
and press it to my chest, life preserver 
in a sea of unremarkable men and women, 
anonymous faces on the street, 
a hundred thousand unalphabetized things, 
a million forgotten hours.”

― Billy Collins, Picnic.

Goodnight . . . . Oh, Man in the Moon








“Oh, man in the moon, send an evening star to wink at my dreary eyes,
and I shall make a wish for a peaceful world that spins with no more lies. 

Oh, man in the moon, send the night’s cool breeze to lull my leery heart,
and I shall cast my fears to the wind with ease, and watch them all depart.

Oh, man in the moon, send the sandman’s dust to rest my weary soul,
and I shall slumber in happy dreams until the morning bells do toll.”

― Richelle E. Goodrich.

Renew me this night in the depths of sleep

  



Renew me this night in the depths of sleep,
set free my dreams of the unknown.
Safeguard this time of resting, O God,
enfold me in the darkness of the night. 


~ J. Philip Newell, Celtic Benediction

May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine






May the grace of the night’s stillness be mine 
may the grace of the moon’s guidance be mine 
may the grace of heaven’s vastness be mine 
to renew my soul in sleep
to enlighten my dreams in the night
to open my spirit to eternity 
until the angels of light awaken me
until the morning angels awaken me.

Prayer by J PHILIP NEWELL ~ Celtic Benediction

Finish each day and be done with it…..





“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and
absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You
shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.”

― Ralph Waldo Emerson

If on such a night we could remain behind in the Garden,

“If on such a night we could remain behind in the Garden,
we might be treated to a wondrous sight; hundreds of fairies
hastening to the ball, and Linkmen running in front, bearing
the winter cherries that serve as fairy-lanterns…”

From “Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens,” J.M. Barrie, 1906;

And let God’s people say Amen.

“Let the day end,
the night fall,
the world move into silence,
And let God’s people say AMEN.

Let minds unwind,
hearts be still,
bodies relax
And let God’s people say AMEN.

But before the day is done,
Let God’s holy name be praised,
And let God’s people say AMEN.”
