“Move on, for your orbit is fixed to your soul…”
A most brilliant poem shared to me by my dear friend, Lois Anne Smith. I’m hopeful she won’t mind if I pass it along. This is an excerpt from the poem, “My Law.”
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox
The sun may be clouded, yet ever the sun
Will move on its course ’till your Cycle is run.
And when into chaos your system hurled
Again shall the Maker reshape your new world.
Your path may be clouded, uncertain your goal:
Move on—for your orbit is fixed to your soul.
And though it may lead to darkness of night,
The torch of the Builder shall give it new light.
It slept in the jewel, it leaped in the wave,
It roamed in the forest, it rose in the grave,
It took on strange garbs for long eons of years,
And now in the soul of yourself it appears.
The rest of this wonderful poem may be found here.
