Best Poem of Eberhard Arnold

The Will
The will is a power.
In the spirit, it calls
you forth and gives
shape and form to all.

God’s will is plain:
he seeks readiness –
so let your will answer.
Let your no become yes.

When all feeling is gone
and all counsel fails,
then faith becomes action –
a goal fills its sails . . .

For My Children
See how the bee-people swarm together –
what perfect oneness they display!
They build and serve and work as one.
With “mine” and “thine” they do away.

When they return to nurse their young,
then, too, they are completely one.
They share the harvest of each blossom,
and none lives for himself alone.
