The soothing sound that water makes
as it laps against the shore,
and the settling as you look across
that somehow helps restore.

The hustle fades as time is spent,
cares, they drift away;
in its place is a slowing down
and a compelling urge to stay.

Praise is due to two I think

first the One who made it all
for our serenity.

And then the one who’s lake-house draws

by removing all distractions
so we will not leave the same.

that satisfy our whims,
the tranquil wonders might miss our eye
as things distract and dim.
