I Seek For Peace

I seek for Peace – I care not where 'tis found:
On this rude scene in briars and brambles drest,
If Peace dwells here, 'tis consecrated ground,
And owns the power to give my bosom rest;
To soothe the rankling of each bitter wound,
Gall'd by rude Envy's adder-biting jest,
And worldly strife; – ah, I am looking round
For Peace's hermitage, can it be found?

~ John Clare
