Verse fitting for today
I was thumbing through some books of mine among my saves. Beautiful poetic and sensitive verses and stories written to warm the heart gained my attention. Some gave us hope for a brighter tomorrow in the troubled world that we live in today. One poet echoed my cry.
The following verse could not hide from me any longer. We are all God’s children, no doubt about it, in my mind will be until the day I die. It is a shame some are too weak of mind and heart to grasp the fact.
So, it is, I share with you this verse fitting for today and the future and give full credit to the author.
“Plea of the Children”
by Belle S. Mooney
Come little Children everywhere,
Let’s friendly be together.
We have the same sky overhead
In dark or sunny weather.
We have the same familiar stars
We have the same dear parents pride
That shine all night above us
To shield, protect, and love us.
Come little children everywhere
From lands that gave us birth
Let’s make our big and beautiful world
Our paradise on earth.
Let’s put away the differences
That lead to foolish wars;
Let’s live together peacefully
As do our kindly stars.
For all the world’s a brotherhood
If we but make it so,
And flowers of peace in every land
We plant and let them grow.
So come little children everywhere,
Let’s learn to be good friends
And let us weave in harmony
Our world’s sad tangled ends.
Oh, let us gather for our own
The best of every land
And mold it into benisons
All tongues may understand
When childhood days are over, then
O’er land an sea shall shine
Most cherished boon of all mankind--
World peace for yours and mine.
I am just a speck on this planet. I cant’ save the world, however; I care and can hope peace on earth will come for all of God’s children someday.
Our daughters will be here in a few days to celebrate their dad’s birthday.
Paul will be 80 years of age, April 6. He’s still grinning and giving us a hard time, but; we are going to keep him! We wouldn’t have it any other way.
