The inspirational poetry of In Quietness expresses Mabel Burlingham’s abiding religious faith and her optimistic humanitarian spirit. When it was first published in 1952, her poems were praised by Rev. Norman Vincent Peale and other religious leaders. Mabel Burlingham’s poems express timeless faith:

So close, and yet beyond my sight,
I sense another world
Of Beauty and of Light.
It seems to permeate the earth
And fill the sky,
It floats upon the clouds
As they pass by,
It ripples on the stream
And murmurs in the breeze,
It sings its sweet refrain
From topmost boughs of trees.
It gleams upon the earth,
And hovers in the air,
It glows within my heart—
God’s Love is everywhere!
---Awareness by Mabel Burlingham

This special edition of In Quietness is published in honor of the 2007 dedication of the Burlingham Memorial Park in Syracuse, New York.
