#PoemsforPeace: Give me only peace, by Louisa Lawson

Give Me Only Peace
by Louisa Lawson

Rank with all its dower,
Pomp with all its train,
Wealth with all its power,
Give I these again.

Race with all its story,
Place with all its ease,
Fame with all its glory,
Give I also these.

Ask I for them? Never!
Let their mem’ry cease.
Take them all for ever—
Leave me only peace.
