Book Of Parables - From Heaven There Fell Upon The Foaming Wave - Poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

From Heaven there fell upon the foaming wave
A timid drop; the flood with anger roared,--

But God, its modest boldness to reward,
Strength to the drop and firm endurance gave.
Its form the mussel captive took,

And to its lasting glory and renown,

The pearl now glistens in our monarch's crown,
With gentle gleam and loving look.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
