Excerpt from Midnight Reverie: A Subjective Study of a Soul Midnight Reverie was written not as a studied production, but rather it came as a spontaneity from God himself, acting through your humble servant. Not a word of it was copied even from another sheet, except as quoted. Just once was a sheet rejected when begun, and that was due to other work requiring the use of the machine. I have to acknowledge that in two different instances I was forced to record, what was originally in my mind, in a totally different manner. Do you ask how? Well, friend, the keys went down that way, almost in my absence. This is offered over the signature of my pen-name, which is obscure, because it is the matter and not the man for consideration. From the noble North to the sunny South, from the effeminate East to the watery West, there is one dominant call, viz.: Be true to that which came as your birthright.

A Midnight Reverie (Classic Reprint): Reinzi Evylin Peniston
A Midnight Reverie (Classic Reprint) ab 10.99 EURO
In Burning the Midnight Oil, word-wrangler extraordinaire Phil Cousineau has gathered an eclectic and electric collection of soulful poems and prose from great thinkers throughout the ages. Whether beguiling listeners with glorious poetry or consoling them with prayers from fellow restless souls, Cousineau can relieve any insomniac´s unease. From St. John of the Cross to Annie Dillard, Beethoven to The Song of Songs, this refreshingly insightful anthology soothes and inspires all who struggle through the dark of the night. These ´´night thoughts´´ vividly illustrate Alfred North Whitehead´s liberating description of ´´what we do without solitude´´ and also evoke Henry David Thoreau´s reverie, ´´Our truest life is when we are in dreams awake.´´ The night writers in Cousineau´s vesperal collection range from saints, poets, and shamen to astronomers and naturalists, and tells of ancient tales and shining passages from the most brilliant (albeit insomniac) writers of today. These poetic ponderances sing of the falling darkness, revel in dream-time, convey the ache of melancholy, conspire against sleeplessness, vanquish loneliness, contemplate the night sky, rhapsodize on love, and languorously greet the first rays of dawn. Notable night owls include Rabandranath Tagore, Mary Oliver, Manley Hopkins, Jorge Borges, and William Blake. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nick Hahn.

Excerpt from Trophies of Grace From the Field of Battle One evening these two soldiers were placed as sentries at the opposite ends of a sallyport, or long passage, leading from the rock of Gibraltar to the Spanish territory, One of them, as we have seen, from the reading of the sacred Scriptures, was rejoicing in God his Saviour; while the other, from the same cause, was in a state of deep mental anxiety, under strong convictions of sin, and earnestly seeking deliverance from the load of guilt that was pressing upon his conscience. On the evening alluded to, one of the officers, who had been out dining, was ´returning to the garrison at a late hour. Coming up to the sentry on the outside of the sallyport, and who was the soldier recently converted, he was asked, as usual, for the watchword. The man, absorbed in medita tion on the glorious things that had recently been unfolded to him, and filled with devout gratitude and love, on being roused from his midnight reverie, replied to the officer´s challenge with the words, The precious blood of Christ} He soon, however, recovered his self possession, and gave the correct watchword. But his comrade, who was anxiously seeking the Lord, and who was stationed as sentry at the other or inner end of the sallyport, a passage specially adapted for the conveyance of sound, heard the words, The precious blood of Christ; mysteriously borne upon the breeze at the solemn hour of midnight. The words came-home to his heart as a voice from heaven; the load of guilt was removed, and the precious blood of Christ received by faith spoke peace to the soul of the sin-burdened soldier.
