Succor

Give me succor
Quell this furor
My lord heed hear
I am full of fear

Arms outstretched
Beseeching pleading
Eyes piercing pleading
Lips aquiver weeping

My heart is breaking
Need arms loving
Cozy sheltering
Alarm bells coursing

Up down running
Blood flowing running
Heartbeat fluctuating
Breath punctuating

Feet tottering tapping
Words spilling stopping
Spirit hoping drooping
Head heavy hanging

Shoulders straightening
Then rounding curving
Stomach heaving aching
Anxiety growing gnawing

Give me succor
Quell this furor
My lord heed hear
I am full of fear

Suddenly my third eye
Opened n took me within
All fear dissolved
All knots unraveled
Joy burst through
Happiness coursed
You gave me succor
Absorbing all fear

If solace is any sort of succor to someone, that is sufficient. I believe in the faith of people, whatever faith they may have.
Studs Terkel
American, Journalist Quotes

Nature has been for me, for as long as I remember, a source of solace, inspiration, adventure, and delight; a home, a teacher, a companion.
Lorraine Anderson

The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As long as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.
Anne Frank
1929-1945, German Jewish Refugee, Diarist
