This Sara Teasdale poem touched me immediately when reading it for the very first time. “Peace flows into me”, the first line of the poem, made me wonder what peace feels like. What does peace sound like? How do we envision peace flowing?  Many of us think of peace as a moment of inner stillness, yet peace, according to Teasdale, is flowing.  Is peace still, or does its constant motion bring us comfort and tranquility, the way the earth is constantly moving in order to create our sense of balance? This setting is melodic, harmonically modern and intriguing, and will be attainable for self-selected high school ensembles, select ensembles, college, and community ensembles.

Peace – written by Sara Teasdale

Peace flows into me
As the tide to the pool by the shore;
It is mine forevermore,
It ebbs not back like the sea.
I am the pool of blue
That worships the vivid sky;
My hopes were heaven-high,
They are all fulfilled in you.
I am the pool of gold
When sunset burns and dies–
You are my deepening skies,
Give me your stars to hold.
