Poetry Wednesday, Vol. 10

I'm a wee bit late for poetry Wednesday, but Thursday is close to Wednesday, isn't it? Be sure to check out the other poems at To Mark Time, add your own next Wednesday!

I find this more beautiful in Spanish, but will post in both languages for you non-speakers.

Nada te turbe,
nada te espante;
todo se pasa;
Dios no se muda.
La paciencia todo lo alcanza.

Quien a Dios tiene
nada le falta.
Solo Dios basta.
St. Teresa de Avila

Nothing disturb thee;
nothing frighten thee;
all things pass
God never changes.

Patient endurance attains all things.

Nothing is wanting
in whom God possesses.
God alone suffices.
St. Teresa of Avila
