Monkeys that roam and rob

On branches their heads bob

Grab chance to pick and eat

Restless scratching on their seat

Chattering mind longs for calm

But attention jumps to disarm

Intentions made and newly born

Rent apart like new clothes torn

Longing not for calm but God

Settles mind and evens odd

Child bored with a candy stick

Cries so Mother ‘s steps are quick


O Lord replace my mind’s restlessness for the world with restlessness for Thee. May my eyes forever be fixed on Thine eyes and may my heart’s rhythm beat in unison with Thine. Increase my longing through Thy grace.
