In  the still of the night

As man slumbers behind the folds,

The forest proclaims;

“I am the power brought by the sun,  from the heart of the earth.”

The sea remains quiet, saying to itself,

“I am the power.”

The rock says,

“The ages erected me as a monument until Judgement Day.”

The sea remains silent saying to itself,

“I am the monument.”

The wind howls,

“I am strong, I separate the heavens from the earth.”

The sea remains quiet, saying to itself,

“The wind is mine.”

The river says,

“I am the pure water , that quenches the thirst of the earth.”

The sea remains silent saying to itself,

“The river is mine.”

The summit says,

“I stand high like a star, in the center of the sky.”

The sea remains silent saying to itself,

“The summit is mine.”

The brain says,

“I am the ruler; the world is in those who rule.”

The sea remains slumbering, saying in its sleep,

“All is mine!”

Kahlil Gibran
