"It has something to do with silence and idleness"

Grains of Sand
    What is the holy secret this planet hides?
    A child may find it at last by the deep sea tides,
    Or in some meadow at dusk exploring alone
    The House of the Broken Heart, or the haunted stone.

Queen of Cups
    It has something to do with silence and idleness
    More than a little to do with loneliness.
    A holy and hidden secret powerful to bless,
    Answering all Earth's prayers with one word "Yes!"

~ Helen Adam, from "The Last Secret"
