I Saw Two Clouds at Morning by John Gardiner Brainard

I Saw Two Clouds at Morning 

by John Gardiner Brainard

I saw two clouds at morning,
  Tinged by the rising sun,
And in the dawn they floated on,
  And mingled into one;
I thought that morning cloud was blest,      
It moved so sweetly to the west.
I saw two summer currents
  Flow smoothly to their meeting,
And join their course, with silent force,
  In peace each other greeting;    
Calm was their course through banks of green,
While dimpling eddies played between.
Such be your gentle motion,
  Till life’s last pulse shall beat;
Like summer’s beam, and summer’s stream,   
  Float on, in joy, to meet
A calmer sea, where storms shall cease,
A purer sky, where all is peace.
