Greetings, everyone! It's great to be here and this is my first post!

 

The newbie creating this thread needs some information. I saw "The Mortal Storm" this morning and I LOVED it! An excerpt from a poem was read by the narrator at the end of the movie and it was mentioned in the closing credits. Unfortunately, before I had a chance to read it, I got distracted and missed it. Can anyone help me as to the name of the poem and its author? Thanks!

The quotation is taken from "The Gate of the Year" (aka "God Knows") by Minnie Louise Haskins. You can read the whole poem here:

Additional note: When Haskins found out that King George VI read the poem in his annual Christmas message to the British people in 1939 (where it first became well-known), she donated all future royalties from the poem to charity.
